Subject Re: Where is my Tomcat
Date Tue, 25 Jul 2006 14:20:09 GMT
All Tomcat installations come with startup.<sh/bat> and shutdown.<sh/bat> located
in $TOMCAT_HOME/bin
run the startup.<sh/bat> first in some sort of console (xterm...) and note the errors
e.g. If it cant find $JAVA_HOME it will output debug messages to screem saying so

When and only when your install has been running reliably well for some time
place startup script in init.d
