Subject Uppercase index.jsp problem with mod_jk 1.2.8 ?
Date Mon, 07 Feb 2005 12:18:32 GMT

we actually use mod_jk 1.2.5 with apache 2.0.52 under win32.
We tried to upgrade to mod_jk 1.2.8, but we get a problem with it.

When specifying a URL like then
the request is forwarded to tomcat, but tomcat is asked for
the file Index.jsp, where on disk only a index.jsp exists.

So it looks like mod_jk always looks for a uppercase index file.

When we specify then everything
works fine...

In the apache config we have this:

DirectoryIndex index.jsp Index.jsp index.html Index.html default.html

In the tomcat config we have this:


If I change the DirectoryIndex to be:

DirectoryIndex index.jsp index.html default.html

Then everything works fine. (But of course the Uppercase index files won't
be served any more)
