I have added this two host in my server.xml. these are 2 different domains pointing to my static IP. the first one is working as i expect but the second one is not opening the site. the first site is pointing to the ROOT folder.

<Host name="kaizen.demo.com"  appBase="webapps"
            unpackWARs="true" autoDeploy="true"/>
			
	<Host name="kaizen.site.com"  appBase="kaizenbe"
            unpackWARs="true" autoDeploy="true"/>

Did you create the directory structure for "kaizenbe"?

Did you create the file ROOT.xmt file under there?

Did you restart tomcat?

Creating the ROOT folder in there did the job. one question,do i need to have a ROOT folder for this to work. If yes then why??

You need a root folder for each virtual host, otherwise it has no clue where to go to get the files for that virtual host.

If for some reason you want two virtual hosts to deliver the same content then you would use the same appBase value for each of the Host Names.
