Subject RE: Shutting down apache tomcat server
Date Thu, 01 Nov 2001 13:04:51 GMT
The conf/ file is written when Tomcat starts
up.  It stores at least the port number of the
Ajp12Interceptor used to invoke the shutdown.  It can
also store a password and other info to help make
shutting down more secure.  When executing
" stop" or "", Tomcat will try to
read this file to determine the port and other info
so it can send the shutdown request.

There is a known problem in that deletes
this file prior to starting.  If you inadvertently
start Tomcat twice, the second one deletes the file
but doesn't get far enough to write a new
As a result, "" won't find the file when
you try to shut down the first instance.

You can try creating a default one manually and enter
"8007" (without the quotes) on the first line, followed
by two blank lines.  Then try shutting down again.
