I'm not exactly sure what/what not gets written to Tomcat's generated file,
but it may be missing some stuff, like assuming the existence of a default
host and port for ApJServ stuff.  The MUG actually has a good example of
what an httpd.conf file should look like to work with Tomcat.

Ok, well since you won't be running Tomcat in standalone, lets do this in
server.xml.  Where you see this:

        <!-- Normal HTTP
        <Connector className="org.apache.tomcat.service.PoolTcpConnector">
            <Parameter name="handler"

            <Parameter name="port"

...comment it out.  You see that mine is already commented out (with the
<!-- ... -->).

That's probably because there was a conflict on port 8080.  I'm not too
familiar with Apache, so I don't know if it just wouldn't start if one of
its listening ports was already taken.  Probably not I imagine?  Anyways,
commenting out the aforementioned section of your server.xml file should get
you started.

...and as well you should, just have to work out some setup issues ;)

I get ya!  Comment that block out, restart both Apache and Tomcat and let me
know what happens.  I'm going to sleep soon, so hurry if you want to keep
this thread going =)
