I am trying to set up confluence instance as an application within a Joomla site.
with the root being Joomla
I have set up tomcat to work with IIS 7 and am using ajp_iis isapi redirects from instructions from this site
Authentication is anonymous
server xml file is

<Connector className="org.apache.coyote.tomcat4.CoyoteConnector" port="8090" minProcessors="5"

<Connector port="8009" address="127.0.0.1" enableLookups="false" redirectPort="8443" protocol="c:\ajp_iis\1.3" tomcatAuthentication="false" URIEncoding="UTF-8" />
<Engine name="Standalone" defaultHost="localhost" debug="0">
