WebRACF - Installation considerations

The WebRACF client is a PHP application. The WebRACF server is an IBM HOST application (ESA or z/OS) handling the RACF requests.

WebRACF must be set-up in such a way that "magic_quotes_gpc" is set to "Off".

Refer to e.g. /Applications/Open-Servers/php5/php.ini file to turn magic quotes OFF.

To verify correct files used check e.g. :
  • Configuration File (php.ini) Path /etc
  • Loaded Configuration File /private/etc/php.ini

In case magic quotes is not turned off, the WebRACF Host Server will not generate the correct RACF commands.
Such RACF commands will simply fail.

WebRACF works best with FIREFOX (
