How To: Configuring Tomcat 4.0.5 (or 4.1.12) for Apache 2.0.42 for ArcIMS Service Administrator

Summary

If you wish to use ArcIMS Service Administrator to remotely administer ArcIMS services, you must configure your Web server:

Procedure

  1. Edit the $CATALINA_HOME/conf/mod_jk.conf file. Open the mod_jk.conf file in a text editor and add the following to your VirtualHost session. For example:

    <VirtualHost Your_server_name>
    ServerName Your_server_name
    ��
    Code:
    JkMount /esriadmin ajp13
    JkMount /esriadmin/* ajp13

    ��
    </VirtualHost>

  2. Copy the \esriadmin directory from the <ArcIMS Installation Directory>/ArcIMS/Administrator to the $CATALINA_HOME/webapps directory. For example:

    Code:
    cp -r <ArcIMS Installation Directory>/ArcIMS/Administrator/esriadmin $CATALINA_HOME/webapps

  3. Open the <ArcIMS Installation Directory>/ArcIMS/Middleware/Application_Server/AppServer.properties file in a text editor.

    Find the preferenceFile parameter and edit it to point to the sitePreferences.properties file:

    Code:
    preferenceFile=<ArcIMS Installation Directory>/ArcIMS/Middleware/Application_Server/sitePreferences.properties

    Save and close the file.

  4. Stop the Tomcat and Apache services. To stop Tomcat:

    Code:
    $CATALINA_HOME/bin/shutdown.sh

    To stop Apache:

    Code:
    <Apache Installation Directory>/bin/apachectl start

  5. Start the Apache and Tomcat services. To start Apache:

    Code:
    <Apache Installation Directory>/bin/apachectl start

    To start Tomcat:

    Code:
    $CATALINA_HOME/bin/startup.sh
