    Question

    How to configure Apache to activate Tomcat WebVoyage?

    Answer

    These instructions are designed to configure one database in /m1/shared/apache2 to be live and ready for connections. If you have multiple databases, you will want to repeat each series of instructions for each database (xxxdb). If you have a split server configuration, the Tomcat components should run on the App server while Apache runs on the Web server.

    Requirements
    • root access
    Downtime
    • Apache will be stopped and restarted
    • No reboot required
    Steps
    1. Make sure the Tomcat modules are automatically started with Voyager
    2. Make the new config files visible to Apache
      1. The standard upgrade procedure installs the appropriate Apache configuration files in /m1/shared/apache2/conf/ConfiguredVirtualHosts/, so they generally just need to be linked properly
      2. If the files referenced in the attached instructions do not exist, please open an SI to the upgrade department to have them installed
    3. To make an interface listen on a different port, edit the port configuration in that interface's config file
      1. A Listen declaration and a Virtual Host should be bound to that port.
      2. Sometimes, the Listen declaration for port 80 is in the main httpd.conf file, since it is the default web port. Example:

    ###
    Listen *:80
    <VirtualHost *:80>
    ###
