Subject Re: tomcat5.5 and ubuntu hardy heron
Date Fri, 19 Sep 2008 16:31:38 GMT
I use fedora rather than ubuntu myself so the details may differ but the
manager webapp may well be in a seperate package that may not be installed
with tomcat automatically. Try looking in synaptic for that. In fedora its
in tomcat<version>-admin-webapps.

The automatic deployment of wars depends on you setting autoDeploy to true
which can be done in server.xml. Check the tomcat documentation for how to
do that.

Hope it helps.
