Subject Re: how to specify configuration file when startup Tomcat
Date Mon, 24 Apr 2000 04:04:24 GMT
I think that the tomcat-apache.conf file is being used ONLY by Apache at
Tomcat uses the server.xml file.

You can use your own .conf file  and you can tell Apache to use it through
"Include /path_to_your_file/my-apache-tomcat.conf"
command in the httpd.conf file of Apache.

You can alos instruct Tomcat to use a custom "server.xml" file by adding a
parameter in the command that starts the Tomcat JVM in the tomcat.bat file.
The parameter is in the documentation
