Subject Re: Upgrade from 2000 to 2003

I use the redirector version 1.2.15 or 1.2.14,  with a binary installer 
(msi.)  1.2.18 does not appear to have a .msi installer yet.
I have Tomcat 5.5.17 running on several windows servers, some with IIS 
6, some with 5 and one with 5.1 (my windows xp system.) On all, I used 
the .msi installer.
I would recommend using 1.2.15 for ease of setup.

Here is a short guide to getting started.
First, download the msi package and run it. This will install the files, 
and make some necessary registry entries.
Steps in IIS (these steps are generally done for the default site by the 
1a. Create a virtual directory called jakarta. Make sure it points to 
the bin directory from the install (typically this is x:\Program 
Files\Apache Software Foundation\Jakarta Isapi Redirector\bin)
2a. Add an ISAPI filter to the site.

Steps in the x:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Jakarta Isapi 
Redirector\conf directory.
1b. Configure the worker files. (I can provide examples if you need some 
Windows specific)
2b. Configure the URIMap file. (Again I can provide examples.)

Steps to get everything working:
1c. Restart Tomcat (make sure that in server.xml you have uncommented 
the redirector connector, and specified a port (typically it points to 
8009). This port should be the same as the port for the worker in worker 
file in step 1b.
2c. Restart IIS Admin in Control Panel > Administration > Services.

You should now be able to browse over to any mapped url. I haven't tried 
to get the administration and manager web apps to work, figuring the 
less accessible they are the better off I am. Whenever you make a change 
to the files in 1b or 2b, you must restart IIS Admin (or world wide web 
publishing) for the changes to take effect.

In the system registry, HKey_Local_Machine\Software\Apache Software 
Foundation\Jakarta Isapi Redirector\1.0 there are several useful entries.
1. log_file -> this key holds the file path to your log file. Very 
useful for tracking down why a redirect may not be working.
2. log_level -> I set this to debug during setup and configuration. The 
most verbose output, the most detail. After everything is working, I 
change it to Info.
3. extension_uri, names the dll for redirection. I wouldn't change this.
4. worker_file, path to worker file. I wouldn't change this.
5. worker_mount_file, path to the URIMap file. I wouldn't change this.

I hope this helps out. If you have any questions, or would like to see 
some sample configs, please let me know I would be happy to share the 
information with you.
