Deploy WAR files for Apache Tomcat for multiple domains

Asked by At

I want to have a web-server running on port 80. Everywhere I read, Apache Tomcat runs on 8080. Who wants to have that in their URL? So my first question is where do I cahnge the port number? Do I change it in a single location?

I am used to apache2 virtual hosting. I would like the same setup on tomcat. A folder belongs to each website. I have figured out how to create virtual hosting with servers.xml and have multiple folders for each site but I can not figure out how to deploy a war file to the root directory of each virtual host.

When the war file is deployed, there is a second.war file and there is a blank dir called second. When I go to see the site I have to go to to see it. I don't want to have to type in second in the URL. How can I resolve this? I am not a java programmer and the guy who is compiling the Java is a beginner JSP developer.

Here is my Host in servers.xml:

  <Host name=""  appBase="webapps" unpackWARs="true" autoDeploy="true">

      <Valve className="org.apache.catalina.valves.AccessLogValve" directory="logs"
       prefix="example_com_app_access_log" suffix=".txt"
       pattern="%h %l %u %t %r %s %b" />

     <Context path="" docBase="/opt/tomcat/webapps/example_com"
       debug="0" reloadable="true"/>
