Installing mod_jk Apache Module

The mod_jk Apache Module is a "bridge" between the Apache Web Server and the Jakarta Tomcat Server. "Normal" web requests over port 80 are handled by Apache and then Java Servlet and JSP requests are forwarded along to the right place (Tomcat, for example) by the configuration directives included with the Include directive below.

NOTE: The mod_jserv Apache Module is an older bridge between Java and Apache. On FreeBSD Virtual Servers this is used to incorportate all the heavy parsing and processing of JavaServer Pages as well.

On Solaris, the mod_jserv module runs unmodified and talks to the Jakarta Tomcat Server if it is available, but is not as fast (and is no longer supported by the Java Apache group) as the mod_jk module. For those who are migrating a lot of FreeBSD JavaServer Pages to Solaris, mod_jserv might be a good solution until they can use the mod_jk module.


Connect to your Virtual Server via Telnet or SSH and do the following.

  1. Add the following line to your web server configuration file (~/www/conf/httpd.conf) after the last LoadModule directive:

    Include /usr/local/jakarta/jakarta-tomcat/conf/mod_jk.conf-auto

  2. Restart your Web Server.

    % restart_apache
