Apache Tomcat configuration error

Hello, Iam a newbie to DigitalOcean. But am knowledgeable in Apache and tomcat.

When I set up the tomcat, I was able to visit the manager( and host manager( urls.

Later, was not reachable when I updated for ssl connection between apache2 and tomcat using mod_jk by following the steps in url:

Therefore I have instead commented JKMount /* ajp13_worker statement recommended by the above url in the files: /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/default-ssl.conf and /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default.conf I completed “Restricting Access to the Tomcat Installation” section as listed in that page.

Now I am unable to visit the manager url to complete my deployment. Please help.

Thank you for your time.


I found that the issue occurs when we add address=“” in /opt/tomcat/conf/server.xml per the document at But now is not reachable… trying to find out why that is not reachable. :)

Hi there @spansoft,

I can see that your domain name is returning an internal 500 error, this is most likely an issue with your Apache configuration.

What I could suggest here is following the steps from this answer here on how to troubleshoot common Apache issues:

The most important things to check are the configuration test and the Apache error log.

Feel free to share the output here so that I could try to further advise!
