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 http://example.com:8080/second 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
<Host name="example.com" appBase="webapps" unpackWARs="true" autoDeploy="true"> <Alias>www.example2.com</Alias> <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"/> </Host>
