Subject Re: Tomcat with Apache
Date Fri, 12 May 2000 23:47:21 GMT
I included the tomcat-apache.conf file in httpd.conf.

I compiled with apxs per the instructions.

I created a sybolic link from libexec to /usr/lib/apache (so the
tomcat-apache.conf LoadModule could find it.

Still does not work.

Any ideas of what to try ?

I get no error messages when I start jakarta-tomcat or apache in there
respective log files.
