Subject RE: apache2+mod_jk + ssl: howto
Date Mon, 06 Jun 2005 05:47:49 GMT
Apache web server's SSL certificate was already configured by our client so
i did't ve to configure anything on apache. But we did configure SSL on
tomcat.

When redirecting, redirect through apache web server's port instead of
tomcat's port, because now your requests are being processed by apache web
server not tomcat. I also made this mistake of redirecting to tomcat's ports
whenever switching between SSL to Non-SSL ports.

We are using tomcat 5.5.9.

I have been using mod_jk2 to forward requests on the httpd2 web server
to tomcat4 successfully - but this was before I tried to implement SSL.
Now that I am looking at how to configure things, I read that jk2 is no
longer supported and that all the new features unique to jk2 have been
included in jk. Seeing as you have it working,  lets assume for the rest
of this thread that I still want to get it working with jk2.

Does that mean generating the key stuff on both machines?

I thought my httpd was SSL-enabled too but I couldn't find any ssl.conf
on my htttp machine. I found a mod_ssl.so file but no config. I didn't
know what to do about it.

This I did too and could access the tomcat install and successfully use
SSL in my app but I was still (and still am) stuck with setting up an
ssl-enabled httpd server and configuring it to act as a front to my
tomcat servlet engine.
