Howto redirect incoming requests to www.paulsinnema.com to www.paulsinnema.com/opencms/opencms in the configuration of Tomcat 4

Hi,

I've installed Tomcat 4 together with OpenCMS on my webserver PC.
Now when I type 'www.paulsinnema.com I get the standard Tomcat greeting page (located at ROOT).
I would like OpenCMS to be the standard start of my site, so when I type www.paulsinnema.com I get redirected to www.paulsinnema.com/opencms/opencms.

I've been struggling with this for a day now and don't seem to be able to find the answer in the documentation of Tomcat.

My question is simple: How can I configure this in Tomcat? But I fear I'll have to do a lot to accomplish this.

Paul.

Why not just use a very simple html redirect?

In index.html or .htm or .php or whatever ... put this one line in the <head>  ... </head> section:

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;URL=/opencms/opencms">

That way, when people go to www.paulsinnema.com, their browsers will request the root ( / ) page, which serve that index page, and their browsers will automatically refresh to the other URL.  The "0" in that meta line says to do the refresh immediately.  You could make it a "10" and have the index page give a redirect notice, only to be refreshed in 10 seconds.

Hope that helps...

Yep,

I had already done that. It also gives me the possibility to code some in the index.html. For instance if I wanted to go to different Sites on the requesting URL, I could code that there.

Thanks, It's not quit the solution I asked for, but it's workable.
