I have just moved my apache2/Tomcat9 server from windows to ubuntu. ProxyPass and ProxyPassReverse are working fine. Known tomcat webapp urls are all passing through.

However, when I just enter the www.myservername.com it goes to the default var/www directory.

I tried redirecting using 000-default.conf. The following works for http://www.myservername.com but does not work for https://www.myservername.com

ServerName www.myservername.com

ServerName www.myservername.com
<VirtualHost *:*>

    ServerName www.myservername.com
    ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
    DocumentRoot /var/www/html
    Redirect permanent / https://www.myservername.com/ddd-college-website/entry

So, in short, typing https://www.myservername.com/ into the browser, should take users to https://www.myservername.com/ddd-college-website/entry. But it's not happening

Any advice would be appreciated


For ServerName set just the Servername, not the portnumber. And for the Redirect it is Redirect permanent / https://whatever/

  • actually, the problem was only with https....not surprising since port is set to 80.....my mistake – Jake Feb 20 '18 at 22:36
