Subject Re: How To Install an APP under Tomcat 4.1.29 ???
Date Thu, 11 Dec 2003 19:44:07 GMT
I assume these are typos in the email, not your config:

 > CATALINA_HOME=/files/apache/jakarta-omcat-4.1.29
                                       ^

 > &lt;Context path="/mid-tier" debug="0"
 > docbase=""/files/ar/mid-tier" reloadable="true"/&gt
      ^     ^
If tomcat has trouble loading the Context i would expect to see 
exceptions in the $CATALINA_HOME/logs/localhost_log.yyyy-MM-dd.txt log 
file, logging to which is enabled by default.

As in java, xml is case-sensitive and docBase!=docbase.

The manager and admin webapps are setup as non-WAR apps with a docBase 
outside the user webapp base. Take a look at 
$CATALINA_HOME/webapps/manager.xml


As for configuring Tomcat with Apache:
http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/faq/connectors.html

HTH,
