To verify that you indeed are using the NIO connector.

  • Furthermore make sure, that the user that starts the Tomcat server has the right to bind to a port below 1024. This is important on linux systems. When running Apache aside of Tomcat, you can add a virtualhost to the httpd.conf and add a AJP Connector module to it. Modproxy or modjk for Apache or isapiredirect for IIS).
  • “HTTP Status 404 - /” (localhost:8080) when trying to install apache tomcat in Eclipse. Apache Tomcat 7 displays blank page Mac OSX 10.8. Getting Apache Tomcat up and running in Mac OS 10.9. Tomcat starts in terminal but not running in browser on ubuntu?
  • We know that tomcat is running on port:8080 (default), in order to make it accessible publicly, new firewall rules setup in VPC Network is required.
  • Change Apache Tomcat port 8080 to 80 or another port number. Whether it is Apache Tomcat 5 or Tomcat 6, by default Apache Tomcat runs on port 8080. But there can be situations where there are some other servers running on this same port forcing you to change the port of one of the servers.

In this How-To guide, we will show you how to set up a reverse proxy between your Apache webserver and your Tomcat server.

Apache Tomcat 8080 Already In Use



For this you are going to need the following



Tomcat application server.

Apache proxy directives can be used in two contexts - server config and virtual host. The examples below will be in the server config context as well as pertain to Apache that has been compiled with the source package from http://httpd.apache.org.

To use the apache proxy directives you need to have the following modules loaded:

Those lines above need to be put in the Apache configuration file where other LoadModule lines are set, like for example, httpd.conf.

Next, in your configuration file add:

The directives above secures your Apache server and sets up the reverse proxy to the Tomcat server. In this example, the Tomcat server and Apache webserver are on the same machine and Tomcat is listening on the default port of 8080.

You can test to see that your proxy is working by accessing http://localhost/webapps. You should see the default Tomcat homepage. Note, that /webapps in the Location block, the ProxyPass and the ReverseProxyPass lines can be whatever you want. You can use /foo if you want and you can access Tomcat with http://localhost/foo.

Note Make sure you understand the security issues involved with proxies and set up access controls for your proxy configuration.

With a default Tomcat setup, you will have broken links in the Tomcat Manager page. Learn how to fix them with mod_proxy_html.
