Hi Dylan,

Log in to the WebSphere administration console, typically: http://localhost:9060/ibm/console/ and 
navigate to "Applications" > "Install New Application". Enter the path to the opencms.war file in 
the field "Path to the new application", and the right "Context Root", typically ‘opencms.war’ 
(the .war is necessary!), then click "Next".

In "Step 1: Select installation options", 
  -	uncheck "Distribute application"
  -	uncheck "Enable class reloading"
  -	set file permissions to ".*\.dll=777#.*\.so=777#.*\.a=777#.*\.sl=777" 
Then click "Next" 3 more times and "Finish". Then click on "Save directly to the master configuration".

This process creates several configuration files under:
Now you can see the installed application under "Applications" > "Enterprise Applications", but it 
is stopped. To be able to start the application you have to unpack opencms.war manually under
And you have to copy ${WAS_HOME}/profiles/${SERVER_NAME}/config/cells/${NODE_NAME}Cell/applications/opencms_war.ear/deployments/opencms_war/META-INF/ 
To  ${WAS_HOME}/profiles/${SERVER_NAME}/installedApps/${NODE_NAME}Cell/opencms_war.ear/META-INF/
Then restart Websphere and install OpenCms as normally described in the documentation.

Kind Regards,
