Tomcat on Apache - Java Servlet and JSP Platform

Tomcat is a servlet container that implements the Java Servlet and the JavaServer Pages (JSP) specifications, and provides a "pure Java" HTTP web server environment for Java code to run in. Tomcat powers numerous large-scale, mission-critical web applications across a diverse range of industries and organizations.

This appliance integrates Tomcat with the Apache web server. When a fully featured web server is not required, consider using the Standalone Tomcat Appliance.

This appliance includes all the standard features in TurnKey Core, and on top of that:

  • Tomcat on Apache configurations:

    • TurnKey web control panel in /var/lib/tomcat8/webapps/cp

      /etc/tomcat8/mod_jk.conf redirects the root web page to the control panel:

      RedirectMatch ^/$ /cp
    • All components installed from package management.

    • Using OpenJDK Java runtime.

    • Deployed web applications in /var/lib/tomcat8/webapps.

    • TurnKey web control panel in /var/lib/tomcat8/webapps/cp.

    • JSP console output sent to syslog (/var/log/syslog).

    • Created Tomcat admin/manager roles and admin user.

    • Use Apache2 Jk loadbalancer connector (performance).

    • JkMounts for admin, manager, host-manager applications (convenience).

    • Bind Tomcat AJP connector to localhost (security).

    • Removed Tomcat HTTP connector listener (security).

    • Set system wide Tomcat and Java environment variables.

  • Includes MySQL.

  • SSL support out of the box.

  • Includes Webmin module for configuring Apache2 and MySQL.

See the Tomcat on Apache docs for further details.

Credentials (passwords set at first boot)

  • Webmin, SSH, MySQL: username root
  • Tomcat administration applications: username admin
