Question

Apache virtual host with multiple tomcat server

I was following these two tutorials

  1. Item 3https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-apache-virtual-hosts-on-ubuntu-18-04
  2. https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/install-tomcat-9-ubuntu-1804

But I need to host multiple websites with multiple tomcat servers. For example, I want to access my domain example1.com/manager/html and example2.com/manager/html, and users will visit example1.com and example2.com without using the port number.

Hi there @ranadepto,

You need to set up separate virtual hosts for each domain name.

You can follow the steps on how to do that here:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-apache-virtual-hosts-on-centos-7

Your virtual host would look like this:

<VirtualHost *:80>

    ServerName www.example.com
    ServerAlias example.com

    ProxyPreserveHost On

    ProxyPass / http://127.0.0.1:8080/
    ProxyPassReverse / http://127.0.0.1:8080/

</VirtualHost>

That way you will specify your domain names as the server name for each Vhost and change the proxy rules depending on your backend port.

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
