Subject Re: Context files disapearring
Date Mon, 03 Apr 2006 18:29:10 GMT
I'm not very familiar with Redhat's offerings.  My main dist of unix is
Mandriva (used to be Mandrake).  At any rate, deleting the context xml
files is not normal tomcat behavior in any version I've ever run (tomcat
3.3 - 5.5).  If I were sitting in front of the machine, I'd be looking
to some security conscious cron job or similar that runs on startup or
shutdown.  Is there any reference to the missing files in your server
logs (/var/log/*).
