Tomcat virtual host shows blank page

+1 vote
148 views

I've been trying to configure tomcat for multiple domains and everything I have tried was unsuccessful.

I added this to /etc/tomcat7/server.xml

 mysite.com

and I created the folder /var/lib/tomcat7/webapps/mysite

Whenever I go to my domain all I get is a blank page. What am I doing wrong here?

Are you using a web server like Apache in front of Tomcat, or are you  hitting the Tomcat port directly? This will tell us if the problem is somewhere in your connector setup or not.

Any clues in your catalina.out log file?

I have a domain domain.com that points to a server. Now I have a subdomain sub.domain.com that points to another server that has Apache running and Tomcat. I want this subdomain to point to a application deployed on the Tomcat instance through ajp.

I have configured the following in httpd.conf:

   ServerName sub.domain.com 
   ProxyRequests Off
   ProxyPreserveHost On  
   Order deny,allow Allow from all  
   ProxyPass / ajp://localhost:8009/ 
   ProxyPassReverse / ajp://localhost:8009/   

and in Tomcats server.xml:

But when I go to sub.domain.com the url changes to otherdomain.com and shows me a php website running in Apache and declared as following in httpd.conf:

 DocumentRoot /var/www/html/otherdomain.com 
 ServerName otherdomain.com 
 ServerAlias www.otherdomain.com 

I only get it to work when I change the port in the sub.domain.com virtual host declaration to for example 8001. Then when I go to sub.domain.com:8001 it shows my tomcat application (ROOT.war) as expected.

So my question is: what could be going wrong that it doesn't work with the default port 80? I can't find any configuration that is causing this, but I'm probably missing something or is my virtual host configuration wrong?

I want to display a static html page to the user if he wants to access a missing application. The goal is to display this page while updating (redeploy) the application to Tomcat. If the application is available, the user must access the application.

Is there a possibility to do this?

Upgrading from tomcat 6.0.35 to 6.0.36 causes a simple jsp page to require about 20 minutes to load.

We have two clients that are running in an IBM mainframe USS (Unix System Services) environment and when they upgraded from tomcat 6.0.35 to 6.0.36, the simple jsp page in our webapp takes up to 20 minutes to load into the web browser. We have other clients that are successfully running 6.0.36 in
the USS environment. So it is a somewhat isolated issue.

I looked over the 6.0.36 change log at
http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-6.0-doc/changelog.html#Tomcat%206.0.36%20%28jfclere%29,
but nothing jumped out at me as to which change may have caused the issue.

Since I am not a tomcat expert, I am asking for help on how to diagnose this issue.

Are there certain logging options that could be enabled?

I am trying to find out through registry checking whether or not Apache Tomcat 9.0.8 is already installed or not. If the below registry is not there, then my program installs Apache Tomcat 9.0.8 installer otherwise it moves on to other installation and completes. It's kind of prerequisite check program.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREApache Software FoundationTomcat9.0Tomcat9

However, everytime program just proceeds to install Tomcat despite it is already installed? Am I checking wrong registry?
