Okay. I started down that path (making a copy and customizing
it), but quickly discovered that the contents of the config file
were beyond me.

The Tomcat-Apache HOWTO is not current? It ships with the source
and the binary distributions, it's dated 10-05-2000, and it's not
even finished...it refers to itself as "a work in progress". Is
there a more current one out there somewhere?

Yeah? Here are the first eight lines from the auto-generated
config file:

LoadModule jserv_module libexec/mod_jserv.so
ApJServManual on
ApJServDefaultProtocol ajpv12
ApJServSecretKey DISABLED
ApJServMountCopy on
ApJServLogLevel notice

ApJServDefaultPort 8007

Looks an awful lot like JServ. Lot of "ApJServMount" stuff in
there, too. In fact, it doesn't mention mod_jk.so anywhere at
all.

Well, I've set up more Apache servers than I care to remember,
but this is my first Tomcat attempt. However I did go through the
"Minimalist" guide and managed to get it working in stand-alone
mode. I guess I'll have to continue to try to find current,
relevant documentation. I'll try the mod_jk howto for starters.

Thanks for your response.
