Subject Re: Tomcat 4.0 on UNIX: no /bin directory in $CATALINA_HOME, and JSP compilation errors
Date Mon, 12 Feb 2007 23:07:45 GMT
On searching for "index$ (Permission denied)" one of the results came up with:

It is probably some security setting (set by your Admin) with Tomcat, to limit access/view
permission of the source code of one user from another.

Subject: Re: Tomcat 4.0 on UNIX: no /bin directory in $CATALINA_HOME, and JSP compilation

Hi, thanks for the replies.

Reading RUNNING.txt was very helpful, as the problem with not finding 
the /bin directory and a problem I experienced after I found the bin 
directory was due to the presence of a CATALINA_HOME and a 
CATALINA_BASE. I found my /bin directory in CATALINA_HOME, and used to shutdown Tomcat. More on that later, as that lead to a 

The reason I have Tomcat 4.0.5 is that my server admin is very busy and 
therefore won't have time to upgrade to a more recent version for 
awhile. So, I'm stuck with Tomcat 4.0.5 for awhile unless I have a 
compelling reason to upgrade. Although in the replies I have gotten 
upgrading is highly recommended, I want to first sort out the problem I 
just got after using Then once the server isn't causing me 
any more problems with that and if it IS causing me problems with my 
JSP, I will most certainly upgrade; I'm not disregarding anyones advice.

Anyway, I used to shutdown Tomcat. I waited for a minute, 
then I used to start Tomcat again. However, when I navigate 
to my localhost:8080 directory to view my index.jsp page, I get the 
following error:

  Apache Tomcat/4.0.5 - HTTP Status 404 -
  (Permission denied)


*type* Status report

*message* _/var/apache/tomcat/work/Standalone/localhost/_/index$ 
(Permission denied)_

*description* _The requested resource 
(Permission denied)) is not available._

I'm not sure what this is telling me. It says permission denied, but in 
the description, it says the resource is not available. This may be 
something that would be more appropriate for me to ask my system admin, 
but I figured I would post here first, just to see if it is a problem I 
can solve on my own. Is there any log file I could post that might give 
more information, or is this pretty much a problem I need to resolve 
with my system admin?

Thanks for the help,
