    Hi ya'll

    i've setup an apache server with tomcat 5.5 on Debian.

    everything is goin fine. when I access localhost:8080 on the server itself I got the default webpage of tomcat .. I click on servlets-examples and I excute a servlet and it executes normally.

    the problem is I want to let some of my clients have a folder on their default directories { /home/client1 ... for example } to publish some servlets and try to access their folders through web like:

    http://domain.com:8080/~client1/servlet/Hello

    my problem is whenever I try to access this URL .. I got an error 404 not found :S

    any idea !!! please cause it's really urgent

    and if you want more information about the setup .. i'm ready to post it over here /.. but I think there's a small trick ....... and everything will go fine

    Regards,

    Do you have Alias directives in the Apache configuration for that vhost? Like
    Code:
    AliasMatch ^/~([^/]+)(/(.*))? /var/www/web1/user/$1/web/$3
    AliasMatch ^/users/([^/]+)(/(.*))? /var/www/web1/user/$1/web/$3

    Falko thank you for your reply...

    but the thing is I didn't install the connecter yet between apache and tomcat.

    so i'm trying to access the servlet directly through tomcat server on port 8080
    http://localhost:8080/~userX/servlet/HelloWorld

    and I got an error 404 page not found .. redirect problem ..since my actual

    folder is found under this folder on /home/userX/webapps/WEB_INF/classes/HelloWorld.class

    I've read a lot of article and i'm still havin the same problem ...

    thank you in advance
