They represent different possible web container configurations. In a fresh M5 archive download (i.e. zip/tar.gz, not the installer), you should find 4 xml files in var/config:
config.xml -- this is the config file which will be used when starting the server
config.both.xml -- sample config settings for both jetty and tomcat
config.tomcat.xml -- sample config settings for tomcat only
config.jetty.xml -- sample config settings for jetty only
For example, to switch to a jetty-only configuration, copy 'config.jetty.xml' to 'config.xml', and start your server.
I am trying to understand why we have 2 server config.xml files in var/config directory,
one is config.xml and the other is config.tomcat.xml.
I tried to change the tomcat web container port number to 8888 in config.xml and restart
the server. The change took effect after the restart.
Then I changed the tomcat web container port number to 8811 in config.tomcat.xml and
restart the server. Nothing that I can notice changed.
Does this mean config.tomcat.xml is not being used at the server initialization? Can
someone explain how to use config.tomcat.xml?
