Subject Re: Apache + Tomcat + mod_jk
Date Thu, 31 Jul 2003 16:04:37 GMT
I am agree with you, only one location for all my application resources is better but my customer
want to separate static resources from dynamic resources.
You tell me that only JkMount directives indicate which serv files, or in my mod_jk.conf there
is only :
JkMount /geode/jsp/j_security_check  ajp13
JkMount /geode/*.jsp  ajp13
so I don't understand why an URL like http://host:port/geode/index.html (ie htdocs/geode/index.html)
is not found, exact message is : "The requested URL /geode/index.html was not found on this
