I am so close to completing my first custom install that I can 'taste it' ... I am following Apache Tomcat install and I have both servers working side-by-side. My Apache server is configured to the public IP and delivers HTML and XML pages to the internet.
My Tomcat, works with localhost:8080 and I can execute sample JSP, Servlets, Applets, etc.
Now I am interconnecting so Tomcat can service JSP and back-end DB to Apache requests. I found the Tomcat connector and I can verify from the logs that the URL is coming in from the internet, as it gets logged in the Apache log, then gets sent over to Tomcat as I can see the URL in its logs and parsed out components. So far, so good ... what isn't happening is the return trip -- the response.
The browser now gets a 503 Service Not Available response (huge progress/success) and I can see the ascii/hex response dumped in the logs.
I think the missing piece is getting the rules configured into the server configuration. That is where the install doc got very vague. I have surfed for the answer, but it is all coming back as IIS answers which does not apply to my Apache.
I think the rules are correct, but I need to know how to, "put them in the server configuration." I assume the file goes on the conf/ folder where my workers.properties is stored and I am guessing that the reference goes in 'server.xml' -- are those two points correct?? And what section of server.xml does it go in and how is the config-node formatted?
If my question needs more detail, please fire-back and I will provide more.
- Apache 2.2
- Windows XP 5.1.26 (ancient but all the SPs are installed)
- Tomcat 5.2.7
- Java / JRE / JSDK, etc are all ~1.4.x, 1.5.x and 1.6.x (I would have to dig more for this if needed).
- Connector is 1.7 (I think) is configured for AJP1.3
- All standard ports
- Firewall is Netgear with port forwarding
- User-id / Passwords are not default
- Other stuff ????
Also, if there are any more hints on debugging/tracing out this issue - I would like to get that documented for my client.
