Subject Re: HTTPD with Tomcat
Date Thu, 08 Jun 2006 05:48:16 GMT
The auto-config Listener has always been somewhat problematic, especially 
with TC 4.x.  At the very least, you need to include in httpd.conf:
  Include /path/to/catalina/home/conf/auto/mod_jk.conf

I don't believe that the Listener really does all that much under the 
<Server> tag.  Even in TC 5.5.x, you need it under the <Engine> tag to get 
simple auto-config.  I believe (since I'm not interested enough to look :), 
that you also need it under the <Context> tag for TC 4.x.  It should be all 
written up in the FM.

I am attempting to setup a scenario in which Tomcat is hosting a web
application behind HTTPD using the Jakarta Connector. I have installed
the following on Solaris 10:

Apache HTTPD 2.0.58
Apache Tomcat 4.1.31
Apache Jakarta Tomcat Connector 1.2.15

I am able to access HTTPD's document root, and I am able to access my
web application through Tomcat. I am having trouble, however,
understanding how to get the two to interact using the connector. I
believe I have it setup properly, with mod_jk located in the /modules
directory of HTTPD, and with an Include statement at the end of
httpd.conf that points to the /conf/auto/mod_jk.conf of Tomcat. Under
the Server section of server.xml in the /conf directory of Tomcat, I
have added a listener as follows:

<Listener className="org.apache.ajp.tomcat4.config.ApacheConfig"
modJk="/usr/apache/modules/" />

which points to the location of

I have added the same line under the Host section, with the added

append="true" forwardAll="false"

My main question is, how do I get my static content from HTTPD to link
to my web application under Tomcat. Do I simply add the Tomcat port
number (8080) to the links in my static content, or is there a more
eloquent way of doing things? I thought the point of the connector was
to prevent having to do this so the experience is seamless for the user.
Any help or ideas are greatly appreciated.
