Subject RE: Getting to work Apache and Tomcat on Win2000
Date Wed, 01 May 2002 13:55:02 GMT
Is there a definitive guide to installing mod_jk on Windows? I'm kind of
confused, because the documentation speaks about the Coyote JK 2 Connector,
and if I look at the distribution at
.0-b8/ I only see JARs, no Apache modules. Searching for mod_jk in the
Apache modules doesn't bring any results. Searching for mod_jk with Google
brings me to (is this
still valid?) and from there to
However, I can't bring all the pieces of this puzzle together...

Yes, everyone has experience problems with mod_webapp on windows.  My 
suggestion is don't use it at all.  Use mod_jk until mod_webapp becomes 
more stable.
