Virtual Host + Apache httpd server + Tomcat + mod_jk connector

Virtual Host + Apache httpd server + Tomcat + mod_jk connector

In my last post (Virtual Host in Tomcat) we discussed about how setup the virtual host in Tomcat. Its cost effective technique because only one public IP is enough to host multiple domain. If we have big organization and each department want to host their website in locally in different machine. then how to achieve the virtual host concept?. In this post we will see the how we do this.

  1. @Rama, Thank you so much this video helped me a lot though I am facing an issue for me localhost:8080/test-1/ is working but localhost:80/test-1/ is giving me error "The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later." Can you please help me with this?

  2. Tomcat ajp port is not secure in 8.5. But if someone still wants to use AJP along with apche httpd how do we make is secure ?

  3. @Rama – You did this video over 7 years ago. I watch a lot of tech videos and rarely comment to the publishers. I sincerely Thank You for this high quality video that is explicit, concise, accurate, and on-point. I have a client that had their system setup at about the same time. They used exactly the configurations you've described here all the way through to domain mapping to specific Tomcat contexts. You've provided a roadmap that now allows me to connect all of the dots, and make changes in this environment to respond to new requests. Well done!

  4. typical indian video. Lots of typing without any top-down approach. You should first state explicitly the goal you want to achieve.
    So you start with a picture like 12:13, then prove 3 tomcats and 3 apaches work, something like 8:53 – 9:15
    Then the rest of the video makes more sense than your far too vague introduction. Introductions should sharply define the goal, you're vlogging to tech guys, not management.
