Did you include the ROOT/ directory from the old installation's webapps
directory?  That is where the welcome page lives.

Subject: Tomcat (Base?) directory

Hi, I am sorry for posting such simple questions to the list, but I am
really pushed for time (new servers have to go live), and I have not
worked with Tomcat before.

I have successfully installed Tomcat, and someone helped me to confirm
that it was working by using CATALINA_BASE=/src/www/tomcat/demoserver.

I copied everything in this directory to a new tomcat filesystem I
created, where my applications will be loaded, and restarted Tomcat from
the new filesystem.

When I connect to tomcat  http://servername:8080, I now get a blank
page, where previously on the demoserver I was able to open a Tomcat
welcome page.

I assume from this that I cannot just move the demoserver directory
structure, but have to also change some config files if I want to do
this - is this correct ?
