Hello all,
I have used WSAD to export a WAR file. I have used the WS admin console to install the application. In order to load the app, I need to use the following url http://someServer:9080/MyAppName/SampleServlet
How does one go about making the application available via port 80? Doesn't the Apache installed with WS automatically connect and allow access? Are there some mapping I need to do?
I am very familiar with the Tomcat/Apache combo way of doing things and with them you usually needed to map the url to the application. Unfortunately, I am very green with WS and have no idea how to do this.
As an addendum to this, does stopping and starting the WS server restart the IBMhttp (apache) server as well?

Thanks,

Yes, there is some mapping you need to do. Run GenPluginCfg (or use the corresponding command in the admin console) to generate the plugin configuration file that routes from the HttpServer to the application server. Search for GenPluginCfg in the infoCenter and you'll find a wealth of information.

No, it does not. They are separate processes.
