Subject Re: Geronimo with Tomcat strange problem: can't find home page
Date Thu, 06 Apr 2006 20:54:06 GMT
Hi Paul,

Thanks for your reply. I tried to access http://localhost:8080/, the same 
error occured.

I check the var/logs/catalina/logs/localhost_access_log, the log is: - - [07/Apr/2006:04:45:01 +0800] "GET / HTTP/1.1" 404 1076

and in the var/config/config.xml file, doesn't set load="false" to 

But I searched the var/log/geronimo.log file and can't find the key word 
"welcome-tomcat". Is it the reason? I tried to Geronimo with Jetty and 
checked the geronimo.log file, the key word "welcome-jetty" can't be found, 
either. but home page is accessed successfully.

I use another machine to test geronimo with tomcat, it is ok to access home 
page. very strange. :(

If you add a slash to the end of the URL do you get the same result?
e.g. http://localhost:8080/
I'm wondering if your browser might be sending a request that tomcat
doesn't understand when the trailing slash is omitted.  Seems unlikely
but possible.

Other things to check:
-  Look in var/logs/catalina/logs/localhost_access_log* to see how
tomcat logs your request.  It should look something like:  ... "GET /
HTTP/1.1" 200 12990
-  Look at var/log/geronimo.log to see if there's anything suspicious
related to the welcome app
-  Look in var/config/config.xml to make sure there's an entry for
welcome-tomcat (which doesn't specify load="false")

Best wishes,
