Hi Jerry,

I took a little time this morning to set up a similar environment:

OS:     Fedora 20 64 bit (latest updates)
HTTPD:  2.4.6-6
mod_jk: 1.2.37
JRE:    1.7.0_51 64 bit
Tomcat: 7.0.50
Tomcat: native connectors

I set up two virtual hosts, and used docBase to get both the ROOT and 
manager applications running under the virtual hosts.

I then pushed the manager application and some sample applications 
through Apache HTTPD using mod_jk.

As an aside, I'm not sure I would recommend running the manager 
application through Apache HTTPD. I can comment on that in a separate 
mail message if you'd like.

All worked as expected.

One of the things I noticed about your Firebug output above is the 
following line:


What is this? I don't see it in my Firebug output.

Another thing that I noticed is that you're running the following Apache 

ServerApache/2.0.59 (Win32) mod_jk/1.2.19 PHP/5.2.17

I know you've been on the upgrade wheel lately, but these are all very, 
very old.

There are known security issues with Apache HTTPD 2.0.x, PHP 5.2, and 
mod_jk 1.2.19. Apache 2.0.x is no longer supported as well.

If you're not using PHP in your environment, I would recommend just 
commenting out the loading of the PHP module. If you are, upgrading it 
may be a bit of a challenge since PHP web applications may or may not 
like the newer versions of PHP.

Anyway, I think what may be going on is that you're using the stock 
Apache Tomcat 7.0.50 for Windows, which comes with tcnative-1.dll.

Having this file in the CATALINA_HOME/bin directory causes the AJP 
connector to use the native APR version. The APR connector may not be 
compatible with your old mod_jk.

My first guess at a solution would be to rename tcnative-1.dll so that 
it won't load (maybe tcnative-1.dll.orig), restart Tomcat, and see if 
things work.

If that doesn't address your issues, then I am afraid it's time to 
upgrade your Apache HTTPD / mod_jk platform.

Jumping from 2.0 to 2.4 is a bit of a pain. I'd try Apache HTTPD 2.2 and 
the latest mod_jk first. The configuration file for Apache HTTPD 2.2 is 
reasonably similar to Apache HTTPD 2.0. Apache HTTPD 2.4 involves a fair 
number of changes.

I hope the easy fix works.

. . . . just my two cents.
