Get started with Tomcat
To get started, we suggest the following steps:
Step 1: Publish Web pages
To serve Web pages with Apache Tomcat, simply copy your files to the default document root directory at installdir/apache-tomcat/webapps/ROOT. To deploy a WAR file, simply copy the WAR file to the installdir/apache-tomcat/webapps folder.
Step 2: Access the management console
Use the Tomcat management console to manage the Tomcat server and deploy applications. To access it, refer to these instructions.
Step 3: Use Apache with Tomcat
You can connect the Apache Web server with Tomcat through the AJP protocol. To make them work together, enable the mod_proxy.so and mod_proxy_ajp.so modules in installdir/apache2/conf/httpd.conf and then configure the ProxyPass directive .
