Subject RE: Changing the ROOT application in Tomcat 6.0.18 on Linux

Thanks for the response, Chris.
Yes, I used ROOT.xml (in upper case) but it just does not work.

Well, there is no particular reason for not renaming my 'testweb' directory
to 'ROOT'. I just do not like the fact very much that I have to rely on
Tomcat specific contexts. I prefer to use my one and it bothers me that it
does not work on Linux.

As mentioned, no problems on Windows XP, but using ROOT.xml on my Linux
machine does not work. It seams that Tomcat ignores the ROOT.xml in
<tomcat>/conf/Catalina/localhost


Thanks for the hint to not use the webapps directory. Yes, I do use another
directory outside of Tomcat (I changes the appBase attribute in the host tag
of the server.xml

What do you mean with 'plus have it loaded from a separate ROOT.xml
file, too' ?

Thanks again!
Maik

Any particular reason? It's /way/ easier to simply re-name your
directory to 'ROOT'.

Try moving your deployment directory to somewhere other than in the
tomcat/webapps directory. It's not a good idea to allow TC to try to
auto-deploy your webapp, plus have it loaded from a separate ROOT.xml
file, too.

Also, are you sure you used ROOT.xml (case matters)? If you didn't do
that, it won't work.
