Subject RE: Tomcat 6.0.18/ IIS 6.0 /SSL
Date Fri, 06 Aug 2010 14:53:40 GMT
Thanks for all of the help and literature. When I tried to launch my
application today, I'm getting a 404 error. At This point I am going to
uninstall, per you recommendation and reinstall. Question for you: Would it
be better to install the 32-bit if our IIS is running as 32-bit? I did this
with the isapi_redirect.dll

I believe that at this point, you may want to :

a) save your web application somewhere else; also save the isapi
configuration files if they are located under the Tomcat installation
directory. (*)
b) de-install the Tomcat you have, and remove all its files (and specially
the logfiles)
c) download a new Tomcat from the Tomcat website, and re-install it

Then restore your application under (tomcat_install_dir)/webapps.

All the above will take only 5 minutes, and you will at least have a clean

Then try it, both directly using HTTP to port 8080, and through IIS and
isapi_redirect using whatver SSL port you use for that.

With the part under IIS (including isapi_redirect) apparently being fine (as
shown before by your previous logs), the downloaded Tomcat should work out
of the box, through IIS and all.

THEN, when you have verified that the above is working, comment out all
<Connector> tags you do not want, except the one for the AJP Connector on
port 8009, and restart Tomcat.

And check the Tomcat logfiles if you have any problem.

Apart from the ones which Chuck mentioned earlier, your pasted server.xml
had a couple of additional mistakes which make it really hard for us to
figure out what is really going on.  (Or it was your cut and paste which was
not accurate, but anyway we can't follow what's happening on the base of
inaccurate information).

In any case, with a correct configuration, the difference in access time
between a direct access to Tomcat via HTTP port 8080, and an indirect access
through IIS and isapi_redirector, should be so small as to be humanly
(We are talking 1 millisecond or so).

Unless it is IIS which for some reason is introducing the delay.

(*) This by the way would be illogical, as these files belong really to IIS
and its add-on module isapi_redirect.dll, and not to Tomcat.
The only part of Tomcat which plays a role here, is the AJP Connector on
port 8009.
