Httpd & Tomcat

Dear All


I am trying to run Httpd and Apache together for the first time ever, however, I have been unsuccessful in my endeavours.


I have to sites that point to the same server:


subdomain1.domain.com – normal HTML & PHP site

subdomain2.domain.com – tomcat servlet with an instance of Atlassian Confluence which connects to port 8090


In the HTTPD conf file I the following:


Listen: 80

#Listen: 8090




<Directory />

     # AllowOverride none

     # Require all denied


    Options FollowSymLinks

    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks Includes ExecCGI

    AllowOverride All

    Order deny,allow

    Allow from all





ServerName:  xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

ServerName:  xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:8090




<VirtualHost xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx >

    DocumentRoot "/www/html

    ServerName subdomain1.domain.com



<VirtualHost xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:8090>

    DocumentRoot "/opt/confluence/confluence"

    ServerName subdomain2.domain.com



I am able to get the normal site, but not the tomcat instance.  Will it be possible to point me in the right direction, please?


Kind Regards

.MSI Files?



Why can’t I find a .msi for any version except Apache 2.2.24 w/OpenSSL 0.9.8?  I’ve looked at so many sites that my eyes are tired.  If anyone can tell me where I can locate one for download and install on my Windows 2008 server, you have no idea how much I would appreciate it!

Re: spam

Sorry, it is not our job to provide support for GetResponse.com  Their answer is wrong and as best I can tell they have old rules and need to look at running sa-update.  Telling you to "consult" with us is completely wrong.  Research the product, read our website, sure.  They are clear about that on their support page at http://support.getresponse.com/faq/what-is-the-spam-score-check-feature.  They appear to use SpamAssassin as a pre-sending Spam Score check system for an out of the box install of SA.  Maybe they have a feature to test poorly maintained installations ;-)  And why they are linking to rule descriptions from SA v3.1.x is beyond me, so ignore that link on the page...

To answer your question and promote the bad behavior, the rule you are talking about I believe is FRT_ADOBE2 and was commented over 12 months ago so I don't think they are properly maintaining spamassassin.

Additionally, neither this list NOR GetResponse provides the support you are requesting.  You either need to do your own research by reading or better yet, downloading and working with SA in a test environment.  Or you need to hire a consultant to advise you on email deliverability/anti-spam needs.  If you are sending legitimate, opt-in email, I'd be happy to talk off-list about what my firm can do to help improve your deliverability to user's inboxes.

But beyond that, I hope my answer is clear.  I am sorry you are getting the run around and recommend you tell GetResponse that their support should be more emphatic that the feature is provided with out support and that they point people to their own FAQ and not recommend they consult the "apache support team" which is a non-existing group they made up to mollify their user IMO.

Hello here is answer from get response. I am interested about BODY: ReplaceTags: Adobe and there is 1.1 score, so what should i do with it?



Hello Tomas,


Thank you for your reply.


In this case, you would indeed need to

consult Apache support team. We are not

able to advise you on the signatures

and descriptions they use to determine

the reason for spam score result.


I do apologise if this is inconvenient for you.


Kind regards,

Fwd: Re: effectiveness of DCC checks?

 > Vernon, do you have a recommended score for the implementation of DCC
 > with SA? There are concerns that bulk mail from good senders has been
 > hit by DCC which is completely by design.

Vernon replied off-list so I wanted to bring the relevant portion back 
to the list:

"My general suggestion is that SA+DCC clients that don't use whitelists 
for bulk mail (I still say whitelists are required) should use a DCC 
score that is not large enough to tell SA to mark a message "spam" 
purely from the DCC result, but large enough to push other signs of spam 
over the threshold. vjs"

So I think DCC users should consider moving DCC to an __ test and 
identify things like DNSBLs with whitelist entries and other tests that 
can use DCC to meta more effective classification rules.

Anyone has any thoughts on rules to submit, let me know!

httpd 2.4 and windows "hangs" and AcceptFilter solution

We've come across numerous cases where apache httpd 2.4 (I'm using 
2.4.12 but I don't believe this is version specific) hang using the 
default configuration options.

There are two cases
1) we have an InstallAnywhere installer that launches httpd during 
install time to do some initial work.  When the installanywhere 
installer starts httpd.exe (it does it via cmd.exe) httpd does not 
respond to requests.  If you kill the installanywhere installer, then 
all of the sudden httpd starts responding
2) certain IE 11 client requests hang httpd 2.4.

I've wireshark'ed #2 and at some point, an http GET gets an ACK and 
nothing more.  I've peeked a little bit at the process threads with 
processexplorer (unfortunately i'm not a windows developer, so I'm not 
entirely familiar with the low level windows stuff) and everyhting looks 
like it's okay and simply waiting for requests.

What I found after googling and testing is AcceptFilter http|https none 
prevents both of those problems.  I've not yet tried connect to see if 
that works either.

But what I'm really wondering about is, can anyone explain, especially 
in #2, what it is about AcceptFilter http none that actually resolves 
these types of issues?

Weird connection issues with mod_proxy_wstunnel

Hello everyone,

I am experiencing weird connection issues with mod_proxy_wstunnel. My Apache 2 web server is still running on Debian Wheezy, so I had to backport mod_proxy_wstunnel using the following patches:

I compiled all mod_proxy* modules using these patches against the apache 2.2.22 sources provided by apt-get source apache2 on Debian Wheezy.

The following represents the relevant parts of my Apache 2 virtual host configuration for https://webgcal.uxnr.de

<VirtualHost ...:443>
        ServerName webgcal.uxnr.de
        ServerAdmin ...

        <IfModule mod_ssl.c>

        Alias /media/ /var/local/pyweb/project/webgcal/webgcal/_media/
        Alias /static/ /var/local/pyweb/project/webgcal/webgcal/_static/

        WSGIDaemonProcess webgcal user=webgcal group=webgcal processes=2 maximum-requests=100 python-path=/var/local/pyweb/project/webgcal:/var/local/pyweb/virtualenv/webgcal/lib/python2.7/site-packages
        WSGIProcessGroup webgcal
        WSGIScriptAlias / /var/local/pyweb/project/webgcal/webgcal/wsgi.py


        <Location /data/>
                ProxyPass ws:// retry=0 disablereuse=On
                ProxyPassReverse ws://
        <Location /settings.js>
                ProxyPass retry=0 disablereuse=On
        ProxyPreserveHost On
        ProxyVia On

Now once a browser has upgraded a connection from HTTP to WebSocket traffic, all traffic is proxied to the WebSocket-server at The problem is that the browser continues to use that upgraded WebSocket-connection for further HTTP-requests, for example to load the next page.

But since all traffic is forwarded to the WebSocket-server, the browser receives a 404 from there. So for some reason HTTP- and WebSocket-connections are not isolated properly. And Apache2 forwards URLs not beginning with /data or /settings.js to the Web-Socket-server.

Any ideas why this might happen?

I also tried the original patch to backport mod_proxy_wstunnel available here:

I applied the patch using the following approach:

That approach was also the basis for my own approach that can be found in the Github repo mentioned before.

If you want to see the issue in action, you will have to signing to webgcal.uxnr.de and create a dummy calendar. This will enable the WebSocket-based status functionality of the dashboard.

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,

My Comments

Dear List -

We are here to help each other. None of us are forced to explain why we are doing something, nor do 
any of us have resumes of everybody on the site.

I am well aware that the programmers who are answering the queries are expert programmers with years 
of experience.  I do not fit into either of the above categories. When I am lost, I have tried 
everything I could, e.g, Dr. Google and many other useful sites.

For all of us in the same or similar boats, I respectfully request that we not be told to read the 
man pages or do appropriate debugging.  A guide to the appropriate sites, command line queries, etc, 
would be much appreciated.  Then we can dig it out for ourselves and learn.

Thank you for your patience in reading this.


Apache ldaps ceritificate directive issue



We’re running Server version: Apache/2.0.63 that needs to be configured for LDAPS. I have run into an issue with the certificate directives.


I have a .pem file with the trusted ca-certs, but when I configure httpd.conf to use it with the directives “LDAPTrustedCA /local/.pem” and  “LDAPTrustedCAType BASE64_FILE”

The following error occurs.


Syntax error on line 349 of /local/apache/conf/httpd.conf:

LDAPTrustedCA not allowed here


This is a directive for this Apache release, so I’m not sure why.

About installing Apache web server

Hi all,

Does Apache web server need X (X window) to run?  Can I install it on server without X, not on desktop? If YES then how can I test the web server locally without a GUI browser?  w3m/elinks/lynx etc only displays the web page as text.  Please advise.
