Subject Fw: what is the command to find out whether or not Tomcat is installed on your server
Date Sun, 19 Feb 2006 20:56:54 GMT
For the sake of others who might have the same question, now or in the future, I'm replying
on the list.

Our copy of Tomcat 4 is not installed in /usr/lib; it is in /var/tomcat4. It's been a few
years since it was installed and I honestly don't remember if that was the default install
location or if we put it in a non-standard location for some reason so this may not be where
you will find Tomcat on your Linux machine. Our machine is currently Linux Mandrake 9, I think,
although the administrator was talking about upgrading to Mandrake 10 a while ago so he may
have upgraded to 10 by now. 

I seem to recall that we installed an RPM in order to get Tomcat up and running but I may
be confusing this with my memory of when we installed MySQL. In some cases, I think RPMs use
non-standard locations for software. 

I think you should be consulting the Tomcat documentation to see where your particular copy
of Tomcat is supposed to be. According to the Tomcat 5.5 installation document, found at http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-5.5-doc/setup.html,
it looks like Tomcat can be in a variety of places on a Linux machine. According to that document,
it appears that you are relatively free to choose any convenient location for your copy of
Tomcat. 

Maybe you need to ask a different question: "If I'm pretty sure that Tomcat is installed on
a given Linux machine but I'm not sure where it is, how do I find it?"

I am  simply trying to verify that the installation of Tomcat
worked...

so if i am logged in to the Unix account, go under usr/lib , i should be able to find out
to see if  tomcat is under usr/lib, correct??

please let me know..

many thanks..

  I think you should clarify what you are trying to determine.

  Are you asking for a command that will prove that Tomcat is (correctly)
  installed? Or are you asking whether a given application is installed within
  Tomcat? Or, do you really want to know if Tomcat is simply running at a
  given moment?

  After all, Tomcat might be correctly installed but still not have any
  applications in it beyond the Manager applications and examples that come 
  with it. Are you simply trying to verify that the installation of Tomcat
  worked? Or are you trying to determine if an application that you wrote and
  installed in Tomcat was correctly installed?

  The two questions may have somewhat different answers. 

  Also, what version of Tomcat are you using? The techniques may change a bit
  from one version of Tomcat to the next.
