Subject RE: Tomcat 4.1 & https problem
Date Fri, 08 Aug 2003 13:42:36 GMT
I've managed to get it working (a problem with the path to the keystore), I'm reading a tomcat
book, and its really useful to know to type "catalina run" if tomcat exits and you cant see
the error messages.

I am running Tomcat 4.1.24 in standalone mode using https with no problems.

How do you have the non-SSL and SSL Connectors defined in your server.xml?
Also, where do your key/cert files live (i.e. within the Tomcat directory
structure somewhere)?

I had the same problem, it seems to occur when you uncomment the connector
in server.xml and causes tomcat to exit, making it impossible to see what
the error message was. I gave up in the end. Have you been able to get it
