Subject RE : RE : Can someone explain catalina.home & catalina.base?
Date Wed, 21 Aug 2002 10:30:56 GMT
My web app directory is physically residing in
c:\idtect\projects\oemserver\web, which is what i defined in the
server.xml for the context docBase.  I think the catalina.base is set
properly, because it is finding my server.xml and tomcat-users.xml
files, as well as it's logging to the appropriate directory.  It's just
a problem with the webapp context.

And again, if I put catalina.base back to the tomcat install directory
and use the -config command line parameter to specify my server.xml, it
works fine.  The reason this isn't acceptable is because then it loads
tomcat-users.xml from the tomcat install directory.  I suppose if I
switch to JDBC security I won't have this problem. ;)
 
I think this may be a bug in Tomcat but it seems to be a common thing to
do so I'm suprised I'm the only one having this problem.
