Subject RE: can't find mod_jk.conf
Date Fri, 16 Aug 2002 14:11:43 GMT

My reply was simply to point out that in an ideal situation, there is no
need to put any mod_jk-specific directives into httpd.conf.

I don't use RPMs, as a personal preference.  I can't tell you for sure one
way or the other why your setup doesn't work.  I can only tell you that I
built apache 1.3.26 (source) + tomcat 4.0.4 (binary, not RPM) + mod_jk
(source) following the docs and it works like a charm.

A properly configured server.xml will generate everything you need for
mod_jk without requiring any change to httpd.conf other than the Include

I posted a How-To at that details, step
by step, exactly how I built my system. I've received comments via email
from several people that say it worked for them...any comments or
suggestions for updating it are welcome and will be added to the document as
time permits.

If mod_jk.conf is not being created, there is a problem with either the RPM
for tomcat, or the RPM is correct and the Listener directives in server.xml
are not correct.  The Listener directives cause the output of mod_jk.conf.
My How-To explains the two initial Listener directives I installed in my
server.xml.  There are also docs on the tomcat website that detail the
Listener directives.

Isn't that the whole point of the original message? I also find that
mod_jk.conf is not being generated. I'm using the rpms on RedHat 7.2. Is
this a known problem?
