Subject Re: [users@httpd] How to convert mod_jk to mod_proxy_ajp on CentOS?
Date Sat, 02 Nov 2019 23:28:50 GMT
I was able to get things to work with 1 remaining issue.

First, installed mod_proxy_ajp. Then, I modified the server.xml file to include:

<Connector port="8009" enableLookups="false" protocol="AJP/1.3" redirectPort="8443" URIEncoding="UTF-8"/>

Then, I commented out all the previous mod_jk configuration settings in the Pre Main Include
in httpd.conf file, and inserted the following:

ProxyPassMatch ^/(nameOfMyApp)(.*) ajp://localhost:8009/$1$2 ttl=120 ping=1

Restarting Tomcat and Apache gave successful results. However, I previously also had the following
2 lines of code inside the include file:

# Ensure Apache will listen on the local IP address for the cross-over cable:

To make things work, I had to comment these 2 lines out, otherwise Apache would not start.
My application and database servers sit next to each other in the datacenter, connected by
a cross-connect cable, so that their traffic doesn't need to cross the world to find each
other through the Internet. Anyone know why this gets broken going to EasyApache 4, and how
to resolve?

Can someone summarize what I need to do to get mod_proxy_ajp installed and working in place
of mod_jk?
