Subject jsp config problem w/ tomcat 3.1
Date Thu, 15 Jun 2000 18:31:30 GMT
hi everyone,

I've scoured the internet for an answer to my jsp config problem, to no
avail.  This has probably been answered before, but I couldn't find an
archive for this list, so here goes:

The jsps provided in the example directories work just fine.  I can't get
jsps in other directories to run, now matter how I fiddle with
tomcat-apache.conf (yes I am including it in httpd.conf).  Here's my

apache 1.3.12
tomcat 3.1

Like I said, all the example jsps and servlets work.  Jsps outside of the
example directories do not, despite following the config instructions for
tomcat-apache.conf specified in the tomcat config docs.

I installed Jrun 2.3 and all my jsps run fine.  I'd like to get tomcat
working too though...

I found a posting on usenet that appears to be the same problem:

I have the same problem and I'm *not* a total newbie :-(

I also need to enable JSP's (and Cocoon for .XML) within my users'
directories without having to create individual "web application"
contexts, and without using Tomcat's own HTTP server.

I have this working fine under Apache JServ 1.1.x, but if Tomcat
can't handle the same configuration then I'm afraid for me it's
next to useless :-(

Any help very much appreciated
