Hi,

I have a website which is deployed in tomcat,at the front apache is implemented.
Application name is "Librarysystem" and is deployed in tomcat.
From apache the request is redirected using

ProxyPass  /Librarysystemajp://localhost:8009/Librarysystem
ProxyPassReverse  /Librarysystem ajp://localhost:8009/Librarysystem

As of now i need to type

http://localhost/Librarysystem to get the login page displayed.

I want that when i type
http://localhost

It should display the loginpage of the "Librarysystem".


how can i get it working.

You need to run tomcat and apache on your workstation

this is obvious,didn't seem that this too is required to write that when we are using word localhost it means that the application is deployed on the my workstation itself.

What i need is configuration which needs to be done either at tomcat or apache side?

The easiest way to accomplish this is to move the ROOT folder(the preinstalled web app in the webapps folder) to somewhere else and rename your Librarysystem folder to ROOT.

What i need is configuration to redirect to "Librarysystem" .

Well for obvious reasons you must replace the ROOT application.

I strictly don't agree with " replace the ROOT application"

thre must be something in virtual host of the apache where we can redirect like in tomcat we can define the context ?

Renaming files should not be that hard. Yes, you can redirect any context by defining it in server.xml

Yes - you can put any application in place of the links and it will override website root in Apache
