How to connect apache and tomcat4?


I installed mod_jk and tomcat4 on my redhat7.3 linux box. I want the /home/users are able to run jsp and servlet on their own directories. However, the apache web server cannot be started now.

Loaded DSO modules/ uses plain Apache 1.3 API, this module might crash under EAPI! (please recompile it with - DEAPI).

What does it mean and how should I do it now?

According to, here were my steps (Please tell me which part I was wrong):

1. I installed mod_jk-1.3-1.0- which was downloaded from

2. I downloaded, rename it to and replace the one located under /usr/lib/apache/

3. Modify: /etc/httpd/conf/

4. Add to: /var/tomcat4/conf/server.xml

5. Add to: /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

6. Modify: /etc/httpd/conf/mod_jk.conf

Thanks for any advice.
