Subject Re: one webapp, many apache virtualhosts
Date Wed, 23 Jul 2008 22:59:41 GMT
Hi Gabe,

Hmm... you mean add the following outside the VirtualHost directives:

ProxyPass / http://mydomain.com:8080/
ProxyPassreverse / http://mydomain.com:8080/
HostnameLookups Off

Wouldn't that just serve up the JSP files that are located in the ROOT
webapp? Maybe I'm confused. Maybe I'm asking the wrong question? I'm not
sure. =P

Is there any way that I can have tomcat serve up the JSP files that are
in each user's public_html directory without having to add <host> and
<context> tags to the server.xml file each time? That way, all the end
user has to do is add new <VirtualHost>'s to Apache and not have to
worry about Tomcat configs?

Thanks again for the patient reply. I really appreciate it!

-Jordan
