Apache / Resin Subdirectories not working

Warning: This is my first Resin Experience, before always worked with Tomcat.

I have a server with Resin 2.1.4 integrated with Apache. It is running a Java Servlet application. The application works just fine. What I thought I could do, was add a subdirectory to the application�s root directory and start adding in .jsp and .html files and they would just be accessible. So say the app root is /home/httpd/htdocs and I add a directory /home/httpd/htdocs/new that I could type in the URL with that subdirectory in it and it would work. So taking the example, the app is now at http://www.mydomain.com/index.jsp that I could access my new files at http://www.mydomain.com/new/index.jsp .

However that is not the case� what do I have to do to either Apache or Resin to get this new subdirectory to work? Thanks!

Note: restarting Apache and Resin didn�t make a difference�

All the directory, including the ones that work, all have the same owner/group.
In the log all I get is a 404 message:
cafwp.mydomain.com - - [26/May/2004:12:19:06 -0400] "GET /new/index.jsp HTTP/1.0" 404 1016 "-" "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)"

Google is not helping and the resin list is slow...

Ah, it's not the subdirectories it's jsp's... still a problem... here's the big picture...

I have a complex environment and I need to make changes. Here�s what it does:

11 different domains all doing a redirect to a single application, it�s configured in the httpd.conf like this:

<VirtualHost xx.xxx.xxx.143>

ServerAdmin root@localhost

DocumentRoot /home/httpd/htdocs

ServerName www.mydomain1.com

<Directory /home/httpd/htdocs/WEB-INF>

Order allow,deny

Deny from all


RewriteEngine on

RewriteRule ^/$ http://www.maindomain.com/arw/index.jsp?id=1234


So the id piece is different for each of the 11 domains, each handled by the application loading a different page. Now, we want to have a second copy of the application running against a different database instance, on another domain. So the directory structure is like this:


How do I add the VirtualHost in httpd.conf for this new app, other than changing the server name, document root, and removing the rewrites.

Then how do I change my resin.conf to handle this? Right now, the main app config is just between two <web-app> tags� I tried <host id=www.maindomain.com> and <host id=www.newdomain.com> but resin just restarting itself, never coming up.
