Copy a script that you now from the /etc/rc.d/init folder and rechange the start up commando to that from tomcat.
You can also create a new script with the things in for starting tomcat.

After that all you need to set a start up link in the rc[0-6].d folder. S = start / K = Kill. The number is the range that he does it...

Succes with it...

Hi stanleyhuen,

You can add a line in /etc/rc.d/rc.local like this :

   su - www -c /path/to/tomcat/tomcatFile

Just change /path/to/tomcat/tomcatFile to the real path/file name.

Hope this can meet your needs.
