mod_proxy with apache tomcat, how do I set it up?



I have my app that serves on localhost:8080. I want to configure things so that it just servers on localhost:80 (or localhost without the port specified). I was told to follow these instructions.

My apache-tomcat that I downloaded is located at /home/myusername/tools/appname/apache-tomcat-6.0.33

I can’t find an httpd.conf file in that dir… so I can’t make the changes that the above article mentions. I am not sure what to do. I am new to apache/tomcat. Any help would be great!


Those instructions are for apache, which is different from apache’s tomcat. What you have (the 6.0.33 thing) is apache’s tomcat, which hosts/runs webapps but isn’t typically used as a general webserver. You need to download and install apache, then you’ll be able to follow those instructions.

You can download the apache webserver here:

Or if you are using an OS with a package manager, use your OS’es package manager instead.

Typically, the httpd.conf file should be at /etc/apache2/httpd.conf (or /etc/apache/httpd.conf).
