Help on Mapping Local Directory for URL

Help on Mapping Local Directory for URL

Help on Mapping Local Directory for URL

Dear All,

We are using Java Based CMS with Tomcat (Application Server) & Apache HTTP for WebServer.
When the User hit the URL, the request will flow blow below:
F5->WebServer->Tomcat->CMS & DataBase.

All Static Files are stored under shared filesystem: /opt/apps/shared/cms/docroot and mounted on all servers. Currently if any requests come it will goes to Tomcat Server only. Instead of that we want to catch the URL at WebServer Level and redirect to WebServer's Shared location.

eg: http://cmstest.com/file_source/cms/about/image1.jp... then it should pick the image from WebServer's Local path: /opt/apps/shared/cms/docroot/cms/about/image1.jpg.

I tried to use Directory, Alias but its not working, Kindly please help on this.

CODE -->

Alias "/file_source" "/opt/apps/shared/cms/docroot" 


RE: Help on Mapping Local Directory for URL

How are you directing your traffic from Apache to Tomcat? If you're using mod_jk, by default it will send ALL traffic. If you want it to split the traffic so some goes to a local file system, and some goes to Tomcat, you'll need to make some config changes to mod_jk and Apache.

If you aren't using mod_jk, then I don't know. What do you find in your log files?
