I tried following Scott L Holmes "Building a better development environment in 10 easy steps" using Apache 2- Tomcat 5 - mod_jk -XP
after step 10 apache will not start-I can't find his blog to ask him
and the books I have don't seem to be for my set-up.
windows home xp sp2
jre1.5.0_12
jre1.5.0_12
tomcat 5.5.23
apache 2.0.59
mod-jk-apache-2.0.59.so binary
I have no problem with running both tomcat and apache seperately but when
I try to use mod_jk to connect them apache fails to start
steps:
copy binary mod_jk-apache-2.0.55.so(download site said to use above mod_jk
with apache 2.0.59) to Apache's modules folder then rename it mod_jk.so
edit tomcat's server.xml right above <\engine> add

<Listener className="org.apache.jk.config.ApacheConfig"
modJk="c:/path to/Apache2/modules/mod_jk.so" />

restart tomcat and it creates C:/path to tomcat/conf/auto/mod_jk.conf
the following file

<IfModule !mod_jk.c>
LoadModule jk_module "c:/use5/apache/Apache2/modules/mod_jk.so"
</IfModule>


<VirtualHost localhost>
ServerName localhost

JkMount /host-manager ajp13
JkMount /host-manager/* ajp13

JkMount /tomcat-docs ajp13
JkMount /tomcat-docs/* ajp13

JkMount /manager ajp13
JkMount /manager/* ajp13
</VirtualHost>

edit Apache's conf by adding to the bottom of file
Include c:/path to tomcat/conf/auto/mod_jk.conf
restart Apache
Thanks for any help

Hi,

Welcome to JavaRanch!

We've got a Tomcat forum, where this really belongs. I'll move it there for you.
