Sun One Reverse Proxy to Tomcat

From EggeWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The goal of this exercise is to get a Sun One 6.1 Web Server configured as a reverse proxy, forwarding certain requests to the app server, running Apache Tomcat 6.0.14.

First, I need to install Tomcat. I've downloaded it to my install directory.

<geshi lang="bash"> $ cd install/ $ gunzip apache-tomcat-6.0.14.tar.gz $ tar xvf apache-tomcat-6.0.14.tar $ mv apache-tomcat-6.0.14 ../ $ cd .. $ ln -s apache-tomcat-6.0.14 tomcat $ tomcat/bin/startup.sh

  1. I'll add this to my .bashrc later

$ export JAVA_HOME=/usr/java $ tomcat/bin/startup.sh Using CATALINA_BASE: /export/home/begge1/apache-tomcat-6.0.14 Using CATALINA_HOME: /export/home/begge1/apache-tomcat-6.0.14 Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: /export/home/begge1/apache-tomcat-6.0.14/temp Using JRE_HOME: /usr/java </geshi>

I'm going to copy some files over from box1, so I'll have something to look at once I get it working <geshi lang="bash"> $ rsync -avz build/reports/cobertura box2:~/tomcat/webapps/ROOT/ </geshi>

A quick check of http://box2:8080/cobertura/ in the browser shows everything is working well.

Next, I need to configure my Sun ONE web server. Fortunately, there's a good guide for this. This seems to be a more useful guide.


Hint to reset the password to blank. I ended not really using the admin console. <geshi lang="bash"> $ diff admpw.bak admpw 1c1 < admin:{SHA}Ngim0aBauiPqOQ5fO0ggPbtyQfc= \ No newline at end of file --- > admin: </geshi>
