Subject RE: Apache, Tomcat and mod_jk2 - question about layout
Date Wed, 27 Oct 2004 13:03:23 GMT
Second request:

Would you post what you did to integrate the two?  I've followed all the
"clues" on both apache and tomcat websites, which is exactly what it says in
three books I've got, and I still get a "File Not Found" error from apache
when I go to the dynamic content.

Is there some reference and description of the parameters and values for the
workers.properties, jk2.properties, and httpd.conf files?  Although the
Jakarta website has some of this, the examples showing the parameters being
used are pretty sparse.  What does JkMount do?  I can't find this documented
anywhere.

I assure you, I've spent DAYS on the websites, in the books, and looking for
documentation whereever I can find it.

Thanks,
Allen
