I have setup Apache, Tomcat, and LetsEncrypt following the tutorials available and my website homepage is running. I am trying to setup a reverse proxy to webapps on Tomcat, though every tutorial I have followed results in failure. I don’t know how to figure out what is happening behind the scenes, i.e., why the request is not going through, so I cannot figure out how to fix the issue.
Tomcat server.xml Connector <Connector protocol=“AJP/1.3” address=“0.0.0.0” secretRequired=“false” port=“8009” redirectPort=“8443” proxyName=“www.example.com” proxyPort=“80” />
I have a <virtualhost *:80> in apache config. ProxyPass /example ajp://localhost:8009/example
I tried setting up a <virtualhost *:443> as well, but when I link to the cert file from letsencrypt, the server fails to start. I have tried a number of different configurations but I am just not able to get it working if anyone has a sample configuration with this setup that is functioning, it would be really helpful. Thank you.
