Subject Configuring Tomcat to use CGI
Date Thu, 17 Apr 2003 21:10:23 GMT
Hello - I am trying to install Bugzilla on a Linux machine using Tomcat4.1 as the server, and
cannot figure out how to get the CGI servlet running. Under the webapps directory I created
a directory called bugzilla, under that a directory called WEB-INF, and in there I created
a basic web.xml file and a cgi directory. In this cgi directory I placed all the .cgi files
(and other files) from the Bugzilla installation. (I am not sure what I should put in this
web.xml file....)

As per the CGI instructions for Tomcat, I removed the comments around the CGI servlet and
mapping sections in the web.xml file (in the conf directory), and changed the name of the
servlets-cgi.renametojar file to servlets-cgi.jar.

When I try to reach the URL - I am getting the
following error -

HTTP Status 503 - Servlet cgi is currently unavailable

Any ideas or help will be much appreciated, I have tried different ideas myself as to how
to organize the directories, and config files, but so far cannot get past this error....
