Subject RE: AJP Connector - Problems Proxying HTTPS Connections

Hassan,

Thanks for your help. I am going to try making my app the ROOT context
for the default host and get rid of the virtual hosts on the Tomcat
side. If that still doesn't work, I'll try some of your troubleshooting
ideas.

I actually tried using mod_proxy_http once in my many attempts to find a
solution and had problems there, too, but I've been through so many
iterations now, I won't swear to exactly what I did or didn't try.

You are right. This really shouldn't be this hard. And I didn't expect
it to be when I started (after all, I did this for another application
in far less time), but once I committed to an approach I was like an old
dog with a bone and refused to let it go until I got it working. Maybe a
new direction will be the ticket to getting me past this.

Thanks again.

Bill Bailey

whoa, you lost me here. The manager is a separate Context -- there's
no reason you can't have your app as the ROOT context on the default
host. Still,

Not a perfect test, since your app might have some Filter doing stuff
that's non-obvious :-)

Anyway, here's my suggestion: replace your current app with a very
skeletal web app, just an index.html, say, so you know there's nothing
wierd going on. Try that. If that still doesn't work, change your httpd
proxy to use mod_proxy_http and forward to your 8080 port.  At the
worst, you can sniff that traffic to see what's really happening :-)

This really shouldn't be this hard  -- I've set up a similar config (but
with multiple virtual hosts) pretty recently, and there was nothing to
it.

HTH,
