I did some research and stumbled on someone who had a similar problem and asked in this question WebSockets through Apache and Tomcat: HTTP upgrade is not supported by the AJP protocol but am running a private tomcat instance on a shared hosting server so the solutions provided in that answer cannot be achieved by me hence i contact my host and they respond with
'While investigating your query, we could see that making changes in the tomcat and HTTP settings as per the steps mentioned in your email will affect the AJP connection configuration of another shared tomcat instance and the applications hosted by the shared tomcat instance will not work. For re-compiling, the connector settings also need a server-wide update and this cannot be done in a shared server environment. We request you to try our VPS plans by visiting the below link.'
I think purchasing a vps plan should be a last resort. Is there anyone here with a more conducive solution to the problem.
