Railo Administrator page cannot access without 8888 port





Issue:

I have installed railo3.2 in a Apache/cPanel server. After i completed railo installation, i cannot access the railo administrator url as like follows.

http://<server IP>/railo-context/admin/server.cfm

But I can access the railo administrator url when i specify the port as like follows.

http://<server IP>:8888/railo-context/admin/server.cfm


Solution:

**This fix is only applicable for Railo 3.2

1. Add an additional conf for railo's mod_jk module in apache.
Open apache configuration file (httpd.conf) and add the following entry in it. Here in my case it is '/usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf'.

Include conf/mod_jk.conf

2. Add railo configuration entries.
Create a file, '/usr/local/apache/conf/mod_jk.conf' with the following contents in it.

#############################################################

<IfModule !mod_jk.c>
    LoadModule jk_module /usr/lib/httpd/modules/mod_jk.so
</IfModule>

<IfModule mod_jk.c>
    JkMount /*.cfm ajp13
    JkMount /*.cfc ajp13
    JkMount /*.do ajp13
    JkMount /*.jsp ajp13
    JkMount /*.cfchart ajp13
    JkMount /*.cfres ajp13
    JkMount /*.cfm/* ajp13
    JkMount /*.cfml/* ajp13
    # Flex Gateway Mappings
    # JkMount /flex2gateway/* ajp13
    # JkMount /flashservices/gateway/* ajp13
    # JkMount /messagebroker/* ajp13
    JkMountCopy all
    JkLogFile /var/log/httpd/mod_jk.log
</IfModule>

3. Restart Apache

root@railo [~]# /etc/init.d/httpd restart

4. If you are using cpanel server, You have to distill apache configuration.

root@railo [~]# /usr/local/cpanel/bin/apache_conf_distiller --update
root@railo [~]# /etc/init.d/httpd restart

Check if jk module is loaded with Apache. If it is enabled you will get a result like as follows.


root@railo [~]# httpd -M | grep  jk
 Syntax OK
 jk_module (shared)

Now try to access railo without giving port number...
