Probably not going to be much help here, but here it goes.

Make sure you have a reasonably recent WebSphere plugin for Apache 
(efixes are available for versions 4.0.2 and newer).  Also make sure you 
have regenerated the plugin configuration on the web server.

Franky, this does not sound like an Apache problem although a 
misconfiguration could possibly cause this.  There are so many variables 
with your setup, it is nearly impossible to diagnose with email.

Also, this maybe a little nitpicky, but I believe WAR stands for Web 
Application Resource.
