Subject Re: apache question

In centos the file /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf should be the
configuration for the Apache HTTP Server. For information on that
configuration please write to the apache users list. One quick tip,
assuming you have no virtual hosts set up, the DocumentRoot directive
will tell you where to put your html files.

To pass java server requests to Tomcat you can install mod_jk. You
should be able to find an rpm to do this for you. Once it is
installed, you'll need to use JkMount directives in the httpd.conf
file to tell Apache Http Server which requests to pass to Tomcat, for
JkMount /*.jsp ajp13 # pass jsp file requests
JkMount /*.do ajp13 # pass struts app requests
JkMount /manager/* ajp13 # pass manager app requests

The ajp13 token above is the name of a worker configured in your
{tomcat root}/conf/ file.

This will help I hope:
