Subject Manager error 'FAIL - Invalid context path null was specified'
Date Sun, 04 Sep 2005 01:02:08 GMT

Hi All,

I'm trying to configure the manager application with virtual

When I request a reload like this -

I get this response-

FAIL - Invalid context path null was specified

However according to this page -

This is a valid syntax, as 'xtb' is my web application name in the
webapps directory - my web application works fine btw, and so does the
manager's list command.

I can only think I haven't understood something correctly, and my
configuration is somehow wrong.

It would be great if somebody could tell me what's wrong so I don't
spend an entire weekend on this. My config follows -

$CATALINA_HOME/conf/server.xml (chopped)
    <Engine name="Catalina" defaultHost="">

        <Host name="" appBase="C:\Program Files\Apache
Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.5\webapps"
            unpackWARs="true" autoDeploy="true"
            xmlValidation="false" xmlNamespaceAware="false">

		... chopped ...




<Context docBase="xtb"
         privileged="true" antiResourceLocking="false"



<Context docBase="${catalina.home}/server/webapps/manager"
         privileged="true" antiResourceLocking="false"

  <!-- Link to the user database we will get roles from -->
  <ResourceLink name="users" global="UserDatabase"



Web application files under this directory - this is why
reload?xtb should work.
