Subject Re: Strange redirect problems with non-existent /servlets/ JkMount
Date Wed, 20 Dec 2000 00:20:48 GMT
I don't know if it's related, but I had a similar problem with weird
persistence of things that shouldn't persist after a restart, and found
that clearing out the $TOMCAT_HOME/work folder solved this:

$TOMCAT_HOME/conf/ stop
rm -rf $TOMCAT_HOME/work/*
$TOMCAT_HOME/conf/ start

Anyone else have this sort of problem?


P.S. I'm not a java programmer, or a tomcat developer, so I can't tell you
why it worked, but it did.
