           Summary: Permission error causes malformed server.xml to be
                    saved.
           Product: Tomcat 5
           Version: 5.5.9
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P2
         Component: Webapps:Administration
        AssignedTo: tomcat-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: gsexton@mhsoftware.com


If:

1)you have a context, and the META-INF directory is not writable by the user
tomcat runs as
2)you use the Admin application to change the server configuration 
3)you use the commit changes button

The save will abort, leaving a malformed server.xml and the user will be told
that "changes were saved successfully" (or something similar). In essence, the
write aborts on the host, and closing tags for engines, services, as well as
other hosts are not written.

I think the user needs to be informed that the save failed. In the best case,
write of the server.xml should be atomic so that a malformed server.xml is not
written.

Here is the error log from when it happens:
