Subject Re: Confusing Tomcat/Apache/Linux problem
Date Sun, 06 Jul 2003 09:17:59 GMT
I'd get rid of Apache and run Tomcat as a standalone until you find the 
solution. It sounds like the context may not be set correctly. It's at 
least a good sign that the 404 is coming from Tomcat, it shows that the mod 
jk stuff is actually working.
