Subject Re: Problems starting up Tomcat 4.1
Date Mon, 28 Apr 2003 12:48:09 GMT

Check $CATALINA_HOME/logs/catalina.out for more info when you do a startup.

Also, what do you mean by "tomcat-related process running"?  You won't see 
any processes named "tomcat" or anything like that.  On Solaris 8, what you 
will see is something like this:

bash-2.03$ ps -ef |grep java
  tomcat  1303     1  0   Apr 02 ?       47:05 
/usr/local/j2sdk1.4.1_01/bin/java -Djava.endorsed.dirs=/usr/local/jakarta- 

Also, on startup, try:

bash-2.03$ $CATALINA_HOME/bin/ run

Instead of to see info directly on the screen, like error 
messages on startup, etc.

Without more info, there isn't really much we can do to help.
