I have a tomcat(running on 8080) application on my cent os server and i can access it with the url:


and I have my admin panel on


and I have an apache server running on port 80.

I have two domains :


I've managed to configure tomcat, mod_jk and apache server such that admin.myapp.com url opens the tomcat home page(SERVER_IP:8080).

But what I want is to make admin.myapp.com url to open SERVER_IP:8080/myapp/admin and www.myapp.com to open SERVER_IP:8080/myapp.

I need to make apache know when a request came to admin.myapp.com, it should know to redirect the request to SERVER_IP:8080/myapp/admin. Something is missing obviously.

Here are my configurations :

httpd.conf (admin.myapp.com.conf actually because it is created by plesk panel but i think it's irrevelant)

<VirtualHost SERVER_IP:80 >
    ServerName "admin.myapp.com:80"
    ServerAlias "www.admin.myapp.com"
    ServerAlias "ipv4.admin.myapp.co"
    ServerAdmin "cuneyty@mycompany.com"
    UseCanonicalName Off

    JkMount / ajp13
    JkMount /* ajp13



# Load mod_jk module
# Update this path to match your modules location
LoadModule jk_module modules/mod_jk.so

# Where to find workers.properties
# Update this path to match your conf directory location
JkWorkersFile /usr/local/tomcat7/conf/workers.properties

# Where to put jk logs
# Update this path to match your logs directory location
JkLogFile /usr/local/tomcat7/logs/mod_jk.log

# Set the jk log level [debug/error/info]
JkLogLevel debug

# Select the log format
JkLogStampFormat "[%a %b %d %H:%M:%S %Y]"

# JkOptions indicate to send SSL KEY SIZE,
JkOptions +ForwardKeySize +ForwardURICompat -ForwardDirectories

# JkRequestLogFormat set the request format
JkRequestLogFormat "%w %V %T"


# Define 1 real worker named ajp13

# Set properties for worker named ajp13 to use ajp13 protocol,
# and run on port 8009

Thanks in advance.

  • I don't think you can change the path part of the URL with mod_jk. If you want to use mod_jk, you'd need to rewrite the URL first so that the path part of the URL matches the expected path on the backend. Other option is use mod_proxy, as you found out. It's more flexible in this area. – Daniel Mikusa Dec 22 '14 at 16:45

I've figured that out using mod_proxy instead of mod_jk and adding these lines :

ProxyPass / http:// SERVER_IP:8080/ 
ProxyPass /myapp/ http:// SERVER_IP:8080/myapp

And this line for cookies :

ProxyPassReverseCookiePath /myapp /"
