Subject Re: Trying to configure apache, tomcat and mod_jk

Thanks to Paul Constantine and Alan Chandler for their responses.

I've managed to get it all working (eventually!). I think there were 
two stumbling blocks:
1. I had rebuild Apache but was accidentally running the old version, 
so the httpd.conf was not being picked up.
2. Paul's blog clarified which settings I should be using in 

I've tried to record exactly what I did here: This 
might be particularly useful for anyone else trying to set up Tomcat 
on a Go Daddy virtual dedicated server.

I think the JkMounts are just telling JK to try to pass on the 
request to Tomcat if the URL fits a particular pattern. I've 
JkMounted all of the directories I need, and Tomcat is happy to look 
for the files in a different directory from Apache.

Yes, you're right. Thanks.

I didn't need this with 1.2.13.

I still don't have an <engine jvmroute=
However, my sets up the paths for Java and Tomcat. 
I don't know whether this is the same thing.

Computers -- don't you just love em! ;-)

Thanks again
