Subject Re: Problem setting server.xml <host> <context> field.
Date Thu, 04 Jan 2007 02:36:44 GMT
Thanks for your reply! I was not aware that mod_jk2 was not the best one 
to use (I assumed 2=apache2).  Rather than fixing my mess, how about I 
ask a different question! I am using the latest version of tomcat, I 
would like to have a single version of tomcat running on one port, which 
I can deploy multiple applications.

I would like to use virtual hosts so that: maps to maps to

Ignoring the mess i have made, how would i do this?  Any help or 
pointers to documents that might help would be much appreciated!

Best Regards,
