Subject RE: Default application or HTML redirect
Date Sat, 06 Sep 2008 11:59:16 GMT
Hello Konstantin,
	I changed the port number during installation to avoid having
users writing :8080 whenever the access my application

	Also, I believe I have the manager application installed, I took
a look at it a while ago, however, my .WAR file is deployed and I didn't
find any need to use the manager application.

	I have checked my META-INF folder, and didn't find any files
except for "MANIFEST.ME"

	What do you think? 


Regards,
Mostafa

Well,

Judging from your server.xml file, you are using Tomcat 6.0.

Well, the file is the same as the default one, only connector port
number is changed, s/8080/80/

Do you have manager application installed? Usally it is installed.
If yes, you can add
<user username="foo" password="bar" roles="manager"/> to your
conf/tomcat-users.xml, and access the application by the
http://localhost/manager/html/

It will list all the applications that are deployed, and allows you to
undeploy applications and deploy your war file by uploading it.

Also, do you have META-INF/context.xml in your war file? If it does
exist there, and is not correctly written, it may break some things.

Best regards,
Konstantin Kolinko
