I would like to connect apache to tomcat via mod_jk (same machine). The ajp connector in tomcat is listening on port 8009, the worker settings are:


However, the connection fails, here is the mod_jk debug log:

[debug] wc_get_name_for_type::jk_worker.c (292): Found worker type 'ajp13'
[debug] init_ws_service::mod_jk.c (1097): Service protocol=HTTP/1.1 method=GET ssl=false host=(null) addr= name=localhost port=80 auth=(null) user=(null) laddr= raddr= uri=/share

[info] ajp_connect_to_endpoint::jk_ajp_common.c (995): Failed opening socket to ( (errno=47)

Why does mod_jk try to connect to and not to

Thank you for your help! Tobias

Have you tried using instead of localhost in the worker properties? it looks odd to me, though... – Gonzalo Alvarez May 18 '12 at 9:57 gives the same result – Tobias Schittkowski May 18 '12 at 10:09
Is this on Windows or Linux? – mahnsc May 19 '12 at 15:25
its Windows Server, 64bit – Tobias Schittkowski May 19 '12 at 16:08
Another option is to use mod_proxy_http. You'll set it up with 1 ProxyPass line. – rightstuff May 19 '12 at 17:00

We just had the same problem and resolved it by using an older version of mod_jk (it did not work 1.2.36 and did work with 1.2.35) on Windows Apache 2.2.22 32bit
