Subject Re: apache2.2 tomcat5.5.27 Windows 2008 virtual hosts
Date Sun, 16 Aug 2009 18:57:27 GMT
Hi André,

Thank you so much for the quick response.
I will check your feedback as soon as I have access to the server again.

The reason for the Apache http server is because I thought I need it to
handle the virtual hosting.

As for the port 80, something else is already using it on the server.

First I will try to have Tomcat listen on 8081 and see where that gets me.

Then I will try without the Apache http server.(though my predecessor must
have had a reason to use it)

In the mean time kind regards,
