Tomcat Docs


APR support requires three main native components to be installed:

For more complex Content Services installations, or if you wish to use an existing Tomcat application server, you can use the Web Archive (WAR) bundle to install Content Services on any platform. For manual installation, you must ensure that the required software is installed on the machine. Apr 02, 2021 This document only applies to Tomcat in cPanel & WHM version 76 and later. Apache Tomcat® allows you to serve Java-based applications. EasyApache 4 provides the option to install Tomcat 8.5. For more information about the Apache Tomcat open-source project, visit the Apache Tomcat website.

  • While installing or upgrading to Smart IT 20.02 and onward versions, you must specify your Tomcat server details in the User Inputs Specify Installed/Existing Tomcat folder section. To provide communication security among applications, configure SSL for the Apache Tomcat server.
  • I think the author of the question asked specifically about disabling Tomcat home page, not redirecting it. I found helpful tip on ibm website. I tried it and it worked for me. Here are steps: Go to Apache Tomcat conf directory; Edit the web.xml file content. Comment out following lines.

  • APR library
  • JNI wrappers for APR used by Tomcat (libtcnative)
  • OpenSSL libraries

Tomcat 7.0.108


Windows binaries are provided for tcnative-1, which is a statically compiled .dll which includes OpenSSL and APR. It can be downloaded from here as 32bit or AMD x86-64 binaries. In security conscious production environments, it is recommended to use separate shared dlls for OpenSSL, APR, and libtcnative-1, and update them as needed according to security bulletins. Windows OpenSSL binaries are linked from the Official OpenSSL website (see related/binaries).

Most Linux distributions will ship packages for APR and OpenSSL. The JNI wrapper (libtcnative) will then have to be compiled. It depends on APR, OpenSSL, and the Java headers.


  • APR 1.2+ development headers (libapr1-dev package)
  • OpenSSL 0.9.7+ development headers (libssl-dev package)
  • JNI headers from Java compatible JDK 1.4+
  • GNU development environment (gcc, make)

The wrapper library sources are located in the Tomcat binary bundle, in the bin/tomcat-native.tar.gz archive. Once the build environment is installed and the source archive is extracted, the wrapper library can be compiled using (from the folder containing the configure script):
