To redirect the Tomcat home page we need to edit file index.jsp (/opt/tomcat/webapps/ROOT/index.jsp). It is a good idea to backup the file before you doing any modification to the file. Below steps was tested on Tomcat 9.
Step 1: To make a backup file:
cp -rp index.jsp index.jsp.bak
Step 2: Now truncate the file using below cmd
Step 3: Content index.jsp should be empty now. Then put below code to index.jsp
<%@ page language="java" contentType="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1" pageEncoding="ISO-8859-1"%> <html> <head> <title>JSP Redirect</title> </head> <body> <% String redirectURL = "https://example.com.au/jasperserver-pro/"; response.sendRedirect(redirectURL); %> </body> </html>
Step 4: Refresh your Tomcat home page
Click refresh button. Now you should see your Tomcat home page was redirect to https://example.com.au/jasperserver-pro/
