Subject Re: Best Connector for Apache 2x and Tomcat 4x
Date Fri, 30 Aug 2002 12:49:55 GMT
Thank you,

Best IS relative. That's why I explicitly stated my needs in parenthesis.
:-)
I'm running on RH Linux 7.1

The reason I wanted to integrate the two is that I don't want to run tomcat
as the root user but I do want to use port 80 instead of port 8080. I know
that Apache gets started by the root user but then forks off all other
processes to the user "nobody".

If you know of a way to configure Tomcat to bind to port 80 without having
its processes run by the root user, this would eliminate the need for me to
integrate. It isn't a site with a lot of traffic or static content.
