Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I've apache2 and tomcat6 running on port 80 on ubuntu server 9.10. I've a registered domain name and I'll access the jsp index page navigating to http://abc.mydomain.com. The page is under tomcat_home/webapps/myapp and the below are tomcat virtual hosting in server.xml file:

<Host name="abc.mydomain.com" debug="0" appBase="webapps" unpackWARs="true">
<Logger className="org.apache.catalina.logger.FileLogger"
directory="logs" prefix="virtual_log1." suffix=".log" timestamp="true"/>
<Context path="" docBase="/usr/share/tomcat/webapps/myapps" debug="0" reloadable="true"/>
</Host>

Recently a new domain has been bought(xyz.mydomain.com) and I'm asked to do the virtual hosting so that the new domain name directly points the page "admin.jsp" which is located under 'tomcat_home/webapps/myapps/WE-INF/js/'. How could I do this?

If I type http://abc.mydomain.com/admin I'll get the page what I wanted. I should access the page just by typing http://xyz.mydomain.com.

If you find you don't get an answer here, you may want to ask this question on serverfault.com, or see if it has been asked there before. –  Stefano Palazzo Dec 10 '10 at 19:11

In web.xml in the welcome file List. Example:

<welcome-file-list>
   <welcome-file>index.jsp</welcome-file>
   <welcome-file>index.html</welcome-file>
   <welcome-file>index.htm</welcome-file>
</welcome-file-list>

Just add another line that refers to admin.jsp.

Thanks Chris
