Subject Tomcat and Apache integration
Date Tue, 03 Dec 2002 00:54:39 GMT


This subject must come up so often I'm sure there must
be an up-to-date FAQ somewhere. If there is I'd be
grateful if someone could direct me to it.

I'm running the following configuration:

.Windows XP
.Apache 2.0.43 (serving correctly on port 80)
.Tomcat 4.1.12 (serving correctly on port 8080)

I simply wish to configure apache to forward JSP and
servlet requests to Tomcat.

I have read the "Working with mod_jk" page:

and tried to follow the steps described. I have:

1) Downloaded the mod_jk DLL and placed it in the
apache modules directory

2) Edited httpd.conf to add the line "Include
TOMCAT_HOME/conf/auto/mod_jk.conf" at the end

3) Tried to run tomcat from the DOS command line with
"startup.bat jkconf" to auto-generate the apache
config files. As far as I can tell this does not work.

I would be grateful if anyone could help me with the

1) Create the auto-generated apache config files

2) Confirm the changes to httpd.conf

3) Explain what "" is (nowhere to be
found in the default apache or tomcat installations on

Thanks in advance.
