I'm new to Apache and Tomcat but a rush project requires that I set them up on a windows (Server 2003 R2) box. I'm at a loss at how to get them to talk to each other. All the documentation I've found seems to talk about configuration files and settings that don't exist anymore. For instance, The Tomcat connector howto documentation (http://tomcat.apache.org/connectors-doc/howto/apache.html
) mentions a mod_jk.conf-auto file that automates the apache configuration (sounds great) but it says it should be in my $TOMCAT_HOME/conf/jk dir but I don't have a jk directory in my conf directory.
Here's where I stand right now.
Apache 2.2 installed and running on 80
Tomcat 5.5 installed and running on 8080 and listening on 8009
mod_jk 1.2.19 for apache-2.2.3 for win32 (which inexplicably is a .so instead of a .dll) is sitting in my apache modules directory (also full of .so) looking sinister
The Tomcat documentation for 5.5 (http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-5.5-doc/connectors.html
) says that the HTTP connecter is setup by default.
Does this mean that I don't need to configure anything on the Tomcat side of things?
Any help on getting this up and running would be much appreciated.
