Hello, Here is the procedure for connecting Apache and Tomcat using JK1.2. on windows systems. 1)download following things(Apache site) Apache 1.3.27 Jakarta-Tomcat 4.1.12 mod_jk v1.2 2)install apache,tomcat and test them. 3)Add <connector> element to in server.xml file like below so that tomcat is listening for AJP13 requests coming from JK1.2. like below <Connector className="org.apache.ajp.tomcat4.Ajp13Connector" port="8009" minProcessors="5" maxProcessors="75" acceptCount="10" debug="0"/>
Above element makes sure that the incoming requests coming at port 8009 will be sericed by Ajp13Connector. 4)Now we need to create a tomcat worker in tomcat worker file,which tells Apache how and when to talk with tomcat. worker.list=myWorker worker.testWorker.port=8009 worker.testWorker.host=localhost worker.testWorker.type=ajp13 And save the file as workers.properties and place it at Tomcat's [/B][/B]<CATALINA_HOME>/conf directory. 5)Now tell Apache to talk to that worker whenever needed by modifying the httpd.conf file at <APACHE_HOME>/conf directory. 6)copy mod_jk(dll file) module to the <APACHE_HOME>/libexec directory. 7)Tell Apache to load the module by adding below to httpd.conf file LoadModule jk_module libexec/mod_jk-1.3.26.dll AddModule mod_jk.c and tell the wrokers file location by JkWorkersFile C:/Tomcat/conf/workers.properties 8)Tell Apache that we want all requests like /examples/servlet/* and /examples/*.jsp to be rerouted and serviced by the worker named myWorker.This is accomplished using the JkMount directive, as follows. JkMount /examples/servlet/* myWorker JkMount /examples/*.jsp myWorker 9)Start Apache and tomcat and test them first. 10)Test connection by typing http://localhost/examples/servlets/index.html or http://localhost/examples/a.jsp (if already a.jsp at tomcat/examples) on adress location of your browser. If you get any problem,check the whole above things..Thanks.
