Hi,

I'm working on 32-bit linux version.
There i've installed tomcat5.0.28.
Now i want to use the compatable version of httpd server for this tomcat.

Can any body let me know where to find the details of this or which version of httpd server i've to use and how to do the installation of this.

Thanks

the apache 2.2 or even 2.0 will work. 2.2 is probably default install for most modern linux distributions. usually there is even a package to have this installed.

then to connect apache to tomcat, you will want the mod_jk apache module, which usually also is available as a pre-built package for your distribution.

I recommend trying to work within the package manager builds if this is your first time getting this set up, it is possible to compile apache and mod_jk from their sources too, but usually this would be only required to enable support for special modules not in the default distribution, or to have a hardened locked down build with some features removed, or to have everything exist in a non-standard prefix.
