I m using Tomcat under windows 2000 Server and want to know abt installing n configuring Apache-Tomcat under windows.

I m using jdk 1.4, Tomcat 5.0 & Apache HTTP Server 2.

Individually Tomcat & Apache Server runs properly.
But when Configuring Tomcat and Apache With the mod_JK Connector, Apache server doesn't start & throws Error-"The Apache2 service terminated with service-specific error 1".

For configuring Tomcat & Apache followed following steps-

1. Configuring Tomcat:

-Added the following entry to <CATALINA_HOME>/conf/server.xml, inside of the <Service> element.

<Connector className="org.apache.ajp.tomcat4.Ajp13Connector"
port="8009" minProcessors="5" maxProcessors="75"
acceptCount="10" debug="0"/>

-Create a Tomcat Worker

The Tomcat worker file, in this example, named as workers.properties and copied into the <CATALINA_HOME>/conf directory of the Tomcat instance that you will be integrating with Apache. (<CATALINA_HOME> represents the base directory of your Tomcat installation.)

Now added the following properties to this newly-created file and save your changes.


These entries define a Tomcat worker named testWorker.

2. Copied the previously downloaded mod_jk module to the <APACHE_HOME>/libexec directory.

3. Added following directives to the bottom of the <APACHE_HOME>/conf/httpd.conf file, as follows:

LoadModule jk_module libexec/mod_jk.dll
AddModule mod_jk.c
JkWorkersFile C:/jakarta-tomcat-5.0.27/conf/workers.properties
JkLogFile C:/jakarta-tomcat-5.0.27/logs/mod_jk.log
JkLogLevel debug
Alias /examples C:/jakarta-tomcat-5.0.27/webapps/examples
JkMount /examples/servlet/* testWorker
JkMount /examples/*.jsp testWorker
<Location "/examples/WEB-INF/">
AllowOverride None
deny from all

4. Already Stopped Tomcat first start, it Start. And then trying to start Apache Server, at this time it throws Error
"The Apache2 service terminated with service-specific error 1"

Please tell me What's wrong in the configuration.

With Thanks & Regards,

You question is off topic for this forum.

This forum is for Servlets questions.

I am going to move this thread to the more appropriate, Apache/Tomcat forum

Thanks and good luck

i did it as follows and it's working:

- install apache 2 webserver (check if it's working via http://localhost/)
- install apache tomcat application server on port 8080 (or another one) (check if it's working via http://localhost:8080/)
- download mod_jk2 here
- extract zip-file and in map modules you find mod_jk2.so and you copy this file to %APACHE2%/modules
- in httpd.conf you find a whole bunch of line starting with LoadModule, you add there
- make workers2.properties in same directory as httpd.conf and put in the following:

replace the ??? with some part of an url that has to be mapped to tomcat e.g. uri:/jsp-examples/*

hope it helps you
