Subject Paths for JkMount
Date Sun, 12 Jun 2005 03:41:21 GMT
Hello -

I am working on a proof of concept application, porting from tomcat 3.n
and Apache 1.3 to Tomcat 5.5.9 and Apache 2.0.52. The problem - every
time this app would try to execute a .jsp file, Apache would return an
error.  After a bunch of troubleshooting in httpd.conf, I found the
problem.  It was these JkMount directives:
	JkMount /servlets/* worker1
	JkMount /*.jsp worker1
	JkMount /*.do worker1

I was assuming these paths were all really relative to my DocumentRoot -
but noooooo!  The path evidently needs to be a real, absolute path.

These directives work:

	JkMount /var/www/html/{approot}/servlets/* worker1
	JkMount /var/www/html/{approot}/*.jsp worker1
	JkMount /var/www/html/{approot}/*.do worker1

(where {approot} is the directory with all the html, jsp, and other

And now the app seems to behave properly.  

But this bothers me - aren't all these supposed to be relative to
DocumentRoot?  Am I missing something or are JkMount directives supposed
to point to an absolute path?
