Subject Re: mod_jk and auto mode
Date Thu, 30 Jan 2003 02:28:47 GMT

Okay so I have mod_jk working (not in auto mode - will test that 
tomorrow), but not without a couple issues most likely due to me still 
wrapping my head around how tomcat works.

when I run the URL stays the 
same through the launching of the example servlets.

however when I run the URL 
changes to http://myserver/examples

I guessing this is a setting in the examples web.xml as a couple test 
servlets I have installed do not exhibit this behavior (and I wrote 
those web.xml files)

or is this a localhost setting issue from somewhere else?

If I understand what John is saying below I should be able to stash all 
my content in /raid/htdocs and have a setting in server.xml point to 
that instead of tomcat4/webapps - correct? Following this non-servlet 
oriented files would simply follow htdocs/ and the rest would go into 
htdocs/<servlet_dir/WEB_INF> and be picked off based on JkMount/JkUriSet?

I assume the docBase can be set for the 'over all' Context as well as 
for individual servlet contexts? Meaning I can set the Overall Context 
docBase to be htdocs then have servletA's docBase be 

Interesting discussion on the Apache ~user front also. I will most 
likely have to move an installation in that direction eventually.
