I think to get your webapps working... unpack them manually, and don't put any context in
the server.xml.

BTW, auto-unpack expects that your war files contains no parent directories; ie: if the name
were mywebapp.war, Tomcat would create a directory named mywebapp, and then unjar the war
file inside it. If you want to do it by hand, then create mywebapp directory in ./webapps
and then "jar xvf <anypath>/mywebapp.war" in mywebapp.
