Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-1029) tomcat web log seems to be created with wrong name and isn't found by the web log viewer portlet
Date Thu, 29 Sep 2005 15:33:01 GMT
There should now be "tomcat only" and "jetty only" sets of config files  
in var/config.  Does it work properly if you copy config.tomcat.* to  
config.*?  I would suggest that if you want to support the "both"  
configuration you need to display all the WebManagers that are returned  
rather than trying to guess which is "more important"
