Welcome to this hands-on lab for setting up an Apache web server as a proxy front end to Tomcat, a Java-based application platform built around deploying and managing Java Web Applications.

The provided server is running Red Hat Enterprise 8. Tomcat 9 is pre-installed and available for you on port 8080 at the server's public IP address. You will be tasked with making Tomcat available on port 80 via the Apache httpd server.

Once you have completed the task you will need to test, to ensure you can connect via port 80 and access the Tomcat GUI.
