Railo Express with Virtual Hosts
Posted by AJ Mercer at 7:19 PM Railo
I wanted to play around with Railo's Extentions without too much messing around. So I thought I would use Railo Express, but I wanted a web site per application, so they could run from the web root. After a bit of Googling (with google cache to the rescure for www.railo-technologies.com/en/index.cfm?treeID=211) I found out how to get this working. This blog is mostly for my personal records, but if it helps others that is great too.
In /contexts directory you will see railo.xml. Make a copy of this file, eg railo-mangoblog.xml, and then edit it.
Find the following
<SystemProperty name="jetty.home" default="."/>/webroot/
and change webroot to a new name, eg webroot-mangoblog
In the same file, uncomment the virtual hosts section and add you domain. eg
Save this file.
Next create the directory you just defined in the same directory as webroot.
(Re)Start Railo using the BAT file(s). You should see a WEB-INF directory being created for you. You can now administor you site for that domain, eg http://mangoblog.railo.org/railo-context/admin/index.cfm
