I am newbie at tomcat, I have installed it (5.5.17) under /usr/lib/ when i browse to http://localhost i get default apache page, and when i browse to htt://localhost:8080 I get default tomcat page and i can run the examples.

I have two problem, when i change the port to 80 in server.xml to get default tomcat page when you run http://localhost, it does not work it generate connection was refused....

somebody told me that i must create a connection between apache and tomcat I installed jakarta-tomcat-connectors-1.2.15 but when i run following commandos
> ./configure --with-apxs=/usr/bin/apxs2

after a while it generates following:

need to check for Perl first, apxs depends on it...
checking for perl... /usr/bin/perl
could not find /usr/bin/apxs2
configure: error: You must specify a valid --with-apxs path

but i know i have apxs2 under /usr/bin and i see it.

how i can solve my problem, thanks

i am newbe and need som description.

You need to install mod_jk plugin to Apache.

Than configure workers.properties in APACHE_HOME/conf


worker.ajp13.host=localhost (probably)

After that you have to configure httpd.conf in the same directory for redirecting jsp and servlet requests to Tomcat.

JkWorkersFile %APACHE_HOME%/conf/workers.properties
JkLogFile %APACHE_HOME%/logs/mod_jk.log
JkLogLevel info
JkLogStampFormat "[%a %b %d %H:%M:%S %Y] "
JkOptions +ForwardKeySize +ForwardURICompat -ForwardDirectories
JkRequestLogFormat "%w %V %T"
JkMount /servlets-examples/servlet/* ajp13w
JkMount /jsp-examples/*.jsp ajp13w

Take this only as an example.
