Are you setting tomcat as standalone server or with another main server like apache?

i don''t get why people don't trust the docs at all. If you think about it, the docs are the very source of all knowlege on any kind of thing that you will do. 2nd to that is experience, and what good is experience if you are experiencing the wrong thing? I suggest that you try reading the docs very carefully, if it really doesn't help you then try something else. I suggest starting over from the beginning if you're going to try again.
