How-to : Tomcat and multiple Virtaul Hosts

clipped from www.csse.uwa.edu.au

TOMCAT
AND
MULTIPLE
VIRTUAL
HOSTS


We had Tomcat working on a single web server. Then we added some virtual hosts
and the tomcat didn't work on the virtual web servers. "Not a problem" we thought,
we can get this working without any problems.

Four days later and its finally working. What I expected to be simple
turned out to be a nightmare of hacking things. The documentation was hazy at best,
so this is the brief recap on what we did. Part of the problem I'm sure was because
multiple people had set up the server, so things were in different places with
multiple instances and configuration files installed.
