I've set up a host with apache to serve static pages and to use Tomcat to serve my web application (See this question). The static pages are server from


and the dynamic (tomcat) pages are server from


The mod_proxy makes sure the "http://myhost.com/myapp" are forwarded to tomcat server running on "http://myhost.com:8080".

The problem is that now you get the standard Tomcat introduction page on "http://myhost.com/myapp" but if you click on a local link (e.g. 'Status') on the left, it generates an URL "http://myhost.com/manager/status" while it should generate: "http://myhost.com/myapp/manager/status"

(The same is true for webapps installed under tomcat)

What should be changed in my configuration (apache, tomcat?) to redirect my tomcat links to the right place?

Accepted Answer

Have you set the ProxyPassReverse setting in your httpd.conf. This will overwrite the HTTP Header an you'll get to the correct request on the side of tomcat.
