Cascade 6 and mod_proxy instead of mod_jk

I have just upgraded our test server from CentOS 5.8 to CentOS 6.2 and found that mod_jk has been deprecated for the newer version of Apache (2.2.15). Is there documentation on using mod_proxy and mod_proxy_ajp for connecting Apache to Cascade?

    Hi Robert,

    Apologies for the late response. Were you able to find information you were looking for and get Cascade to run behind either mod_proxy or mod_proxy_ajp?

    We do not currently have documentation that discusses running Cascade behind these two modules; however, I was able to find a few articles that described setting up a Tomcat Application to run behind Apache with mod_proxy or mod_proxy_ajp, they may be able to point you in the right direction:

    Please let us know if you have any questions.

    Notes for anyone else who finds this:
    in server.xml, either uncomment or add the following in the section:

        <!-- Define an AJP 1.3 Connector on port 8009 -->
        <Connector port="8009" protocol="AJP/1.3" redirectPort="8443" maxProcessors="256" tomcatAuthentication="false" />

    and in your apache config:

    #  Tomcat connector
    ProxyRequests off
    <Proxy *>
    Order deny,allow
    Allow from all
    # change the authentication for your environment
    #    <Location />
    #       AuthType CAS
    #        AuthName "Cascade"
    #        require valid-user
    #    </Location>
    ProxyPass / ajp://localhost:8009/
    ProxyPassReverse /
    # End Tomcat connector

    This is working for me on Cascade 7.0.x.
