Is it safe removing war file after exploding

Hi Guys,

I installed alfresco, the war files are exploded.And it's working well. With Apache tomcat + mysql

Then I stop tomcat, and delete the war file, cause I assume that the war files was exploded, I thought that don't need the alfresco.war anymore.

But after that, when I start tomcat, it give me error : 404.

Please confirm, is it possible if I delete the war file, without producing any error?

Had it been exploded.

In the $CATALINA_HOME/webapps directory there should be a directory named alfresco.

If that directory is not there it is not exploded, and therefore would result in the error you receive.

If you look at a standard Tomcat distribution you will see a number of directories under the webapps tree that are tomcat applications.  They do not rely on any war files.  Neither does it rely on yours.
