I've not used Tomcat before, so I can't shed any insight on whether Tomcat is doing any of the processing.

Where is this "index.html" page that you want to load? I ask because in your first message, you mention that you set the DocumentRoot to /webapps/, so I was assuming you had an index.html in there. But, with the above configuration, anything in /webapps/ is autoredirected to /webapps/PCW/ with these lines:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^/(.*)$ /PCW/$1 [R]

If that's your intention - is there a /webapps/PCW/index.html in there?

    Yes. Everything works until I enable the lines:

    AddType text/html .html
    AddHandler server-parsed .html

    which produces the error I mentioned above. Tomcat is supposed to serve any page with a .jsp suffix and Apache anything with .html so I wouldn't think that Tomcat has anything to do with it in this case but thought I should mention it. Note that since I'm not using CGIs (I think!) I didn't follow the CGI steps earlier in the article - a problem do you think?

      No, not following the CGI instructions would have nothing to do with it. Instead of doing the two lines you just gave me, why not just modify your existing AddHandler line to include .html? So, instead of the above, search for your:

      AddHandler server-parsed .shtml

      And change to:

      AddHandler server-parsed .shtml .html

        tried both - does the include change any paths ? Really very odd.
