Subject Virtual Hosting with Apache and mod_jk
Date Wed, 02 Aug 2006 18:47:15 GMT
Hi all,
   I'm still pretty new to this. I'm trying to set up a home server
for testing and learning purposes, and I'm having some troubles
setting up virtual hosts with Apache and mod_jk.

I have created a virtual host in my httpd.conf:
<VirtualHost *:80>
        DocumentRoot /opt/projects/www/com/townsfolkdesigns/web
        /*.jsp ajp13
        /*.do ajp13

and set up a host in server.xml:
<Host appBase="/opt/projects/www/com/townsfolkdesigns/web"
   <Context docBase="/opt/projects/www/com/townsfolkdesigns/web" path="">

This works great when I set up my hosts file to point to the correct IP of my server box.

However, if I try to access the server directly by IP, I get a 403
error. If I remove the virtual host, I can access the server directly
and get the default apache page. As I am still learning, I would like
to be able to get to the default apache page so I can read the
documentation as I fiddle around. So my first question is how do I set
it up so I can access my website via, and
still get to the default apache page via direct IP?

My Second question is in regards to mod_rewrite, I want to be able to
use mod_rewrite to easily host a couple other domains on the same box.
Is there something like this for tomcat? I would like to be able to
declare one Host element (with a simple context element) in the
server.xml and have the requests directed to the correct paths. Is
this possible?

Thanks in advance for any help.
