An FAQ on the Apache httpd and Apache Tomcat web servers, and on using them together

Both Apache httpd and Apache Tomcat are popular web servers - and most people who use Tomcat 'front' it with httpd. We run an Apache httpd course (under Linux / Unix) and also a combined httpd and Tomcat course so we're very familiar with those "Frequently Asked Questions" that everyone wants to have answered, but seem missing (or obfuscated) in the documentation!

This article is a listing of almost 100 postings that I have made over the last few years in answer to questions raised on courses. They are sorted as follows:
1. Questions about using the servers together [jump]
2. Questions about Apache httpd [jump]
3. Questions about Tomcat [jump]
4. Questions about the http protocol [jump]
