Let me try to help, just read the difference moments ago...

You use tomcat.conf if you are running tomcat without apache. That mean,
tomcat will serve all static pages(.HTML), servlets and JSP pages.
However, tomcat is very slow and inefficient in serving static pages, thus
you need to make apache to serve static pages and tomcat to serve the
servlets and .JSP pages. This method will render tomcat as an add-on to

This is where tomcat-apache.conf comes in.

Hope that I am right. Can someone in the list verify my explanation and if
possible shed more light to this issue?
