I am new here and looking for some direction, please.
I suspect the info is already on the site. Somewhere.
But getting a bit lost in the huge amount of info already published.
What I am trying to do is to setup Apache Webserver to direct users to an application I have running on tomcat. I have done this before with IIS (ahem) and tomcat. But that is all done through an interface.
My understanding is I need to modify a number of files in Apache.
but getting lost in the forest of data published
A bit of guidance as to where to start would be very much appreciated.

I have apache installed and running as a service and verified it is running cleanly by going to http://localhost:

It is called reverse proxy. To tomcat you can use the ajp protocol or plain http


<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName jenkins
    DocumentRoot "/mario/Apache24/htdocs"
    <Directory "/mario/Apache24/htdocs">
        Options Indexes Includes FollowSymLinks
        AllowOverride All
        Require all granted
    <Location />
        ProxyPass ajp://localhost:8009/
        ProxyPassReverse ajp://localhost:8009/

The proxy pass could also co to https

        ProxyPass https://localhost:8009/
        ProxyPassReverse https://localhost:8009/
