    Description

    Running mod_jk over SSL with Apache 2.2.22 (SP 3.4.0+) requires additional configuration. Please follow the following steps:

    1 - Add lines to ssl.conf file:

    Add the following "JkMount" lines in ./dtle/apache/conf/ssl.conf, in <VirtualHost> tag:

    <VirtualHost>

    # Mount your applications
    JkMount /mng* localnode
    JkMount /deposit* localnode
    JkMount /webclient* localnode
    JkMount /approver* localnode
    JkMount /webingest* localnode
    JkMount /collection* localnode
    JkMount /j2k* localnode
    JkMount /metsviewer* localnode
    JkMount /view* localnode
    JkMount /oai* localnode
    JkMount /ImageServer* localnode2
    JkMount /digitool-report* localnode

    </VirtualHost>

    2 - Edit mod-jk-workers.properties file:

    Comment the following lines in ./dtle/apache/conf/mod-jk-workers.properties:

    #worker.localnode.local_worker=1
    #worker.localnode.cachesize=10

    #worker.localnode2.local_worker=2
    #worker.localnode2.cachesize=10

    3 - Confirm following setting in ./dtle/apache/conf/httpd.conf:

    Change from -
    LoadModule dtl_module /exlibris/dtl/d3_2/dtl/exe/mod_dtl.so

    To -
    LoadModule dtl_module /exlibris/dtl/d3_2/dtl/exe/mod_dtl_22.so

    Add -

    <IfModule mod_dtl_22.c>
    ServerAddr 127.0.0.1
    ServerPort 4882
    OAIServerAddr 127.0.0.1
    OAIServerPort 3882
    </IfModule>

    4 - Restart Apache

    Note: As Apache will be listening on privileged ports 80 or 443, then Apache must be started as ROOT using apachectl_auto.

    The -DSSL flag must be added to apachectl_auto.

    Eg:

    #!/bin/csh -f
    source /exlibris/dtl/u3_1/dtle/dtl_start
    $httpd_bin/httpd -d $httpd_root -DSSL
