Subject RE: confusion on running Stand alone
Date Tue, 24 Oct 2000 21:03:22 GMT

Thanks for the reply. I tried that also, and since there's a connector entry
, as seen below, for 'root' I put an index.html file (verified all
permissions on it) and called  http://serverIpd:8080/index.html also

<Context path="" docBase="webapps/ROOT" debug="0" reloadable="true" >

Very strange.... but then again it is the holloween season over here. :)

The log files seem to be happy with the exception that I occasionally see
this error message in the tomcat.log file. the error is marked by *'s, I've
just included the whole log file as it's quite small and maybe the insight
will help.
(FYI: /usr/local/tomcat is a symbolic link to /usr/local/jakarta-tomcat)

Starting tomcat install="/usr/local/tomcat" home="/usr/local/jakarta-tomcat"
Context log: path="/admin" Automatic context load
Context log: path="/admin" Adding context path="/admin"
Starting endpoint port="8080"
Starting endpoint port="8007"
**** Error reading request connection reset ****

Thanks a million.
