chris, i have both tomcat and apache here on my desktop. http://localhost:8080 gets me to my Tomcat site, while port-less references to http://localhost go through apache. seems like they work separately, not together. :-S does this help? david David Landy, IT Consultant Business Intelligence Somerfield/KwikSave +44 (0) 117-301-8977 david.landy at somerfield.co.uk <mailto:david.landy at somerfield.co.uk> Don't be afraid to try something new.

I also have Apache 2.0.48 installed and working. However, I can not figure out how to get tomcat to work in connection with apache. I have been searching the web for the last several hours trying to get this to work. (I am also trying to get this work on windows XP, btw) There is an excellent tutorial over at SitePoint, but it is a year old now and was written for Tomcat 4. Therefore, it does not work. I have looked at the somewhat cryptic documentation for mod_jk and am even more confused. Has anyone been able to successfully connect these two and if so how? Please point me to a tutorial or give instruction for what will work.
