Virtual Hosts

Tomcat is capable of working with Apache's virtual hosting. Just like when you add a context, you must modify server.xml, but this time you put the Context within <Host> </Host> tags, such as in this example:

<Host name="" >

<Context path=""

 docBase="webapps/examples" />

<Context path="/examples"

 docBase="webapps/ROOT" />

As you can see, other than the <Host> </Host> tags, it's similar to adding an ordinary Context entry.

Now in /etc/apache/httpd.conf you must configure the Apache side of things. Inside of the <VirtualHost> </VirtualHost> section you must place the Apache directives that normally would have gone in /etc/apache/mod_jk/tomcat.conf or tomcat-auto. An example of this is given in Section [*].
