install tomcat

Hi all,

I've recently installed tomcat 5 as a IIS 5 plug-in but I can currently only use pages in the jsp-examples directory on the tomcat webapps folder.  I need to configure tomcat to allow jsp pages in a folder on the root of my system.  I presume I need to edit the workers2.properties, but could do with some guideance.

Anyone brave enough to give this one a try???!

Cheers,

Rich

Hi all,

Sorry for such a long delay for my reply, i've been off on a course :o(

Anyhow, I think my question has been mis-read.  I have already installed tomcat and IIS and they are all working fine...what my question was is how do you serve directorys from your harddisk rather than using their own i.e. jsp-examples etc etc...

I have now found the answer, but rather than closing the question and not giving the points, I will still award the points to anyone that posts the answer....(it's actually very simple! ;o)  )

Cheers,

Rich

Hi,

it should be simple...

Example : If "testdir" is your directory...then

testdir/* will map all subdirectories under testdir.

for people reading this forum with the same problem the answer is as follows:

select the tomcat administrator page usually installed in the tomcat application software folder.

or goto:

http://127.0.0.1:8091/manager/html

From this page you can administrate which directorys tomcat shares out...

Hope this helps someone :o)
