Subject RE: Host Manager Questions
Date Thu, 01 Dec 2005 20:18:32 GMT
OK, that pointed me in the right direction. The tomcat user did not have
WRITE permissions to the 

[enginename] directory.

That now brings up the point that just slays me:

Why in the world does it assume that I want the manager application deployed
to the new host? Who thought that was a good idea?

When I create the new host, it copies manager.xml, and deploys my ROOT
context (which exists in docbase), but doesn't create a ROOT.xml file in the

[enginname]/[hostname]

Directory. Also, it doesn't appear that the host-manager modifies
server.xml, so any aliases or options specified at creation are lost when
the server re-starts.

As it stands, this is pretty useless. It just infuriates me that any time I
point out how bad the admin app is, everyone tells me to use manager, or
host-manager, but they're totally useless as well.
