Tomcat behind an Apache


Hello.

I am trying to set up an Apache frontend server followed by a Tomcat server. Tomcat needs to run as an https service. I will have two services, both accessible independently, if desired.

(1)http://mydomain.com (2)https://mydomain.com/login

This login module is a webapp, running inside Tomcat.

Question:
Do I configure the Tomcat on port 8443 (I want to run it as a non-root) and do nothing with Apache or do I run on the standard port 8080 and configure Apache?
If Tomcat, is it server.xml? (connector?)
If Apache, is it httpd.conf?

Please give some guidance. Thank you.

Let me rephrase the question:
Do I configure the Tomcat on port 8443 (I want to run it as a non-root, is it better to run Tomcat as a non-root?) and do no ssl-thing with Apache or do I run on the standard port 8080 and configure Apache to handle ssl?
