Subject RE: Upgrading from 3.2.1 to 4.0.6
Date Tue, 15 Oct 2002 17:08:11 GMT
did you create a 'foo' context in server.xml?

you do not want to overwrite /conf/web.xml. you can copy the web.xml from
your webapps along with all your code and it should work since it's
backwards compatible.

are there any errors in the logs?
