Subject Re: Tomcat 4.0b5/Apache/mod_webapps/JSP - NO GO!
Date Wed, 18 Jul 2001 21:51:18 GMT

AFAIK (memory lapses are usual!)

WARP is for apache 2.0
mod_webapp is for 1.3.x

Install instructions are in server.xml. You'll need to do something special 
to apache, it is detailed in server.xml

I'm having this trouble too, and I need to write a chapter on the damned
