Subject RE: Tomcat, mod_jk and Apache...again!
Date Fri, 10 May 2002 18:36:55 GMT
    In order to help, please be more descriptive about your access
restrictions, and the way you have set up your directories. Based on the
things you have said so far, this may be your problem:
Tomcat looks in its webapp directory for webapps to deploy. Even a single
jsp page constitutes a webapp(albeit a simple one).
I think you are missing this fundamental point of tomcat. Tomcat needs to
look for your jsp pages, then compile them, and
put them in a working directory where they can be served. It has no idea
that there is such a place as /var/www/html, only a
$TOMCAT_HOME/webapps directory. The only way you could let it know about
/var/www/html would be to modify the xml config file. But it is much easier
to just put your jsp pages in $TOMCAT_HOME/webapps, the way the system was
designed. Sorry for any errors, but that is my understanding of it.

Subject: Tomcat, mod_jk and Apache...again!

I'll give it another try, and hope someone can help me in sorting this

Due to access restrictions my jsp files are located with my static pages
the /var/www/html directory. I will use Apache 1.3.23 to serv my static
As I will not be deploying any webapps - only a few jsp pages - i would
to use mod_jk instead of mod_webapp.

When I browse jsp pages located in /var/www/html they are displayed as pure
text pages and not as html....

Please anyone - I have struggeled with this for several days - can anyone

This is what I have added in my httpd.conf file:

LoadModule jk_module modules/
AddModule mod_jk.c

Include /var/tomcat4/conf/auto/mod_jk.conf

# Configure mod_jk
JkWorkersFile /var/tomcat4/conf/
JkLogFile /var/log/httpd/mod_jk.log
JkLogLevel info

JkMount /*.jsp ajp13


This is my server.xml file:
