I inherited my company's website which runs off a remote Tomcat server. It is all Java, which I've been learning well enough, but I don't know squat about Tomcat servers.
Lets say, for anonymity's sake, my site is "frenchfries.com", when someone comes to my homepage they are redirected to "http:www.frenchfries.com/fries/Welcome.do
". I assume that means that "fries" is the name of my WebApp. The application "fries" resides in the "catalina/webapps/" directory. Every page that my site hosts is expressed as "www.frenchfries/fries/aboutus.jsp
" or "www.frenchfries.com/fries/recipe/index.html
The WebApp's name is always included.
How do I remove "fries" from the url. I want to have my pages come up as "www.frenchfries.com/aboutus.jsp
" or "www.frenchfries.com/recipe/index.html
To that end, how do I get the homepage to drop the "Welcome.do" and just load as "www.frenchfries.com
