Apache – Redirect apache to tomcat


I am trying to redirect domain.com to tomcat7, I tried a lot of configurations and doesnt seem to work…

This is my /etc/tomcat7/server.xml config

<Connector port="8080" protocol="HTTP/1.1"

And this is my /etc/apache2/httpd.conf

LoadModule proxy_module /usr/lib/apache2/modules/mod_proxy.so
AddModule mod_proxy.c

ProxyPass / http://domain.com:8080/
ProxyPassReverse / http://domain.com:8080/

<Location "/">
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

When i go to domain.com i get this default apache message:

It works!
This is the default web page for this server.
The web server software is running but no content has been added, yet.

When i go to domain.com:8080 i get the tomcat message:

It works !
If you're seeing this page via a web browser, it means you've setup Tomcat successfully.     Congratulations!
This is the default Tomcat home page. It can be found on the local filesystem at:     /var/lib/tomcat7/webapps/ROOT/index.html

I loaded few .WAR with tomcat assistant one is called App1.
If i go to domain.com/App1 i get:

The requested URL /App1/ was not found on this server.

But if i use domain.com:8080/App1 the app works properly and shows a for loop for example.

UPDATE: tried /etc/apache2/ports.conf with this config:

Listen 80
ServerName domain.com
DocumentRoot /var/www/domain.com/public_html
NameVirtualHost IP

UPDATE2: i just wiped out my debian and i just used /etc/apache2/httpd.conf to set this: (only with this file I achieved same result as above, still must use domain.com:8080/appname to run an app…)

<VirtualHost *:8080>
ProxyRequests off
ProxyPreserveHost on
ServerName domain.com
ServerAlias *.domain.com
ProxyPass / http://localhost:8080/
ProxyPassReverse / http://localhost:8080/

How can I do it to redirect straight to tomcat default message instead of apaches ?
And how to get rid of that :8080 and make apps work on domain.com/appname

Best Solution

After long time this is tha answer:

    Edit file: /etc/apache2/sites-available/default
    ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
    ServerName domain.com

    DocumentRoot /var/www
    ProxyPreserveHost on
    ProxyRequests off
    ProxyPass /phpmyadmin !
    ProxyPass / http://localhost:8080/
    ProxyPassReverse / http://localhost:8080/

using ! to prevent forwarding phpadmin to tomcat
