Subject Re: installation is a nightmare/ mod_jserv vs. mod_jk
Date Fri, 09 Nov 2001 22:33:54 GMT

For what it's worth, I found mod_jk easier to install and configure than
mod_jserv -- though when I rebuilt my box, I didn't bundle them at all, I
just used port 8080 for the tomcat stuff.

Also, one of the users on this list seems to have written these
instructions, and they worked for me quite well, I hope they help.

I know everybody is trying, but installing tomcat 3.2.3 with apache is a
horrible experience.  wrong information everywhere. the most painful and
convoluted installation i have ever seen.

this is the most useful guide i have yet found:


the linux binary distribution comes with configured for
NT is not on my machine.  i am led to beleive that mod_jk
it entirely.  not true ?  i guess i'm just going to put it on, but it
suggests that something is not right in the basic configuration.
mostly people seem to say that we should switch to mod_jk anyway, but i'm
not even sure they are equivalent.

tomcat-apache.conf is an auto-generated file.  i make changes to it, on
startup they are over-written.  it specifies

tomcat.conf does not appear to affect it
i cannot figure out from where it is getting its information.
