How to configure tomcat java web application in Apache?


I have a tomcat web application which is running under http://localhost:8080/app_name.

Now i would like to configure that application under apache, for that i created one config file under sites-available/ and i enabled that site.config using a2ensite. Now i have config shortcut under sites-enable/.

configured host:

<VirtualHost *:80> ServerName ProxyRequests Off ProxyPreserveHost On <Proxy *> Order deny,allow Allow from all </Proxy> ProxyPass / http://localhost:8080/realmilk/app_name ProxyPassReverse / http://localhost:8080/app_name </VirtualHost>

When i run that configured domain i got
