Subject Problem with directory listing when running tomcat as NT service
Date Tue, 14 Nov 2000 14:19:52 GMT
Hi tonmcat users,

I’m not able to get a directory listing when running tomcat as NT service,
when the docBase is outside of the tomcat directory.

This does not work properly when I run tomcat as a NT service.
<Context path="/food" docBase="c:/food/build/food" debug="9"
reloadable="true" >

But if I put it under the webapp root or use relative path
“../../food/build/food” the servlets works fine.

The directory listing and access to html documents through tomcat doesn’t
work. I have found, that there’s a difference if you start tomcat as a NT
service or just in a command prompt. The directory listing works fine if you
just use a command prompt.

Can anyone help?

I’m running tomcat3.1 under windows 2000 server.

Many regards from
