Tomcat can read the file, afaik :
  -rw-r--r--   1 user  staff   1.6K Apr  6 11:32 test.jsp
Even a chmod +rx on the jsp files doesn't help.

I can edit it under the tomcat account using vi, tail-ing it, more-ing 
and so long, but I still get the 404 error.

By trying things here and there, I found that actually, it launches a 
404 error on /~user/ when using the www.site.com:8080 address.
The www.site.com works just fine, being an apache frontend.

Something must prevent it from correctly use the UserConfig directive, 
but the log doesn't show anything relevant :|
2006-04-06 12:11:52 UserConfig[www.site.com]: UserConfig: Processing START
2006-04-06 12:11:52 UserConfig[www.site.com]: Deploying user web 
applications

When launching it under the root account, I get :

2006-04-06 12:11:52 UserConfig[www.site.com]: UserConfig: Processing START
2006-04-06 12:11:52 UserConfig[www.site.com]: Deploying user web 
applications
2006-04-06 11:18:06 UserConfig[www.site.com]: Deploying web application 
for user "User"
2006-04-06 11:28:27 UserConfig[www.site.com]: UserConfig: Processing STOP

Looks kinda fishy to me.

Thanks,
