After system reinstall, I had to quickly rebuild development environment with Railo and Apache (or nginx web server). Small cheat-sheet on configuring web servers with Railo.
Railo on top of Tomcat has its own web server built-in, and it listens to port 8888 by default - if accessed with browser directly, Tomcat will answer without need of Apache HTTPD or other web server at all.
Use Apache 2.4 binaries from Apache Lounge and install mod_jk.
We can get rid of mod_jk, and use mod_rewrite for URL tweaking and sending CFML requests to Railo
Instead of forwarding to AJP port, we can forward to built-in web server directly:
If you feel comfortable with nginx for serving static files, here's config to forward CFML requests to Railo. Works perfectly.
