Changing files within the deployed web application in Tomcat is not a
reliable way to make changes.  These changes are likely to be overwritten
when the WAR file is redeployed, which can happen when Tomcat is
restarted.  If you're needing to change part of the Guacamole code, you
should do one of two things:
- Write an extension that makes the desired modifications and deploy that
extension with the standard Guacamole WAR (
- Change it in source code, recompile the web application, and re-deploy
the modified WAR (

Also, make sure to clear your browser's cache when making these changes -
HTML files are likely to be cached by the browser and even if the changes
are successfully made and deployed, you may not see them for the lifetime
of the cache.
