Deploying a war file to Tomcat 4.1.27 RPM install.
Posted on 2004-08-10
I am trying to deploy a .war file to Fedora C2, Tomcat 4.1.27, httpd 2.0.49. All three including the jk2 connector were installed using rpm (apt-get)from the fedora projects. The examples work fine and everything is redirected correctly.
I have tried the .war in 2 locations '/usr/share/tomcat/server/webapps' and '/var/lib/tomcat/ROOT' neither work/create a dir when tomcat is restarted.
Now come the questions?
1. What is the path to deploy a .war file
2. How should the permissions be set for tomcat to deploy the .war
3. Where are the tomcat errorlogs written to see if the .war is causing an error.
4. Is there a way (excluding the tomcat manager) to force tomcat to deploy the .war file.
This is the version of tomcat installed with rpm and is not like the bin install. If anyone has any docs on how the rpm installs tomcat that would also be helpfull. My test env is running redhat 9 with a standalone tomcat 5 install and i can get it to work no problem.
If im being a DumbA$$ please forgive me.
ps ant is not installed on the system
