Subject Re: Trouble setting up virtual host
Date Wed, 22 Jul 2009 19:57:19 GMT
The default Tomcat page is what I get if I try to enter that on the server 
hosting Tomcat & Crystal Reports my configuration in the 
server.xml file must be incorrect.

If I try to type in the webpage from another computer it can not find the 

"Change is the essence of life. Be willing to surrender what you are, for 
what you could become".

DNS entries associate host (and domain) names with IP addresses.
They do not "point to pages".

Then you could replace the default home page with one that will
forward or redirect requests to / to your own app.
You can make your own app the default Context by removing the
existing ROOT Context and renaming yours to ROOT, and define
login.jsp as a welcome page (see the default welcome pages and
explanatory note in the global $CATALINA_HOME/conf/web.xml).
