IBM Connections 5.5, a nice new feature of the installer

Today I installed Connections 5.5, and I discovered a nice new feature of the installer.

The installer performs the same steps as for Connections 5.0 up to the database connections; then there is a new thing. It asks if you want to Configure the IBM HTTP Server and you can choose “Do Now” or “Do Later”. If you choose “Do Now” it will configure automatically the applications to use the HTTP server, avoiding you to have to check out the LotusConnectionsConfig.xml file, edit it removing all the port numbers, and check it in again. Obviously if you select “Do Later” you’ll have to do that procedure manually, as it was in the previous versions of Connections.

Really nice, kudos to the developers for doing this.
