Hi Sergey,

you can use "sudo -u tomcat /path-to-the-dist-dir/bin/" to start
the instance up as another user. However, this restricts the ports to above
1024, because other than apache, tomcat does not have the feature to start
up as root, gain the socket for port 80 and change the user afterwards.

What sort of linux do you use?

On redhat, you could write a sh script, put it into /etc/init.d and link
from the appropriate runlevel /etc/rc.d/rc3.d to have it called.

Don't forget to set the classpath and path appropriate.

Cheers, Mika

Subject: Tomcat on Linux


I'd like to ask some advice on how to best run Tomcat on Linux -- how can I
make Tomcat start
at the init time (possibly using chkconfig or something similar) and how do
I make Tomkat run as the Tomcat user/group -- what files under Tomcat
distribution should be owned by whom?

Thank you very much for any help!
