The above is wrong; the appBase should be "/var/www".

<Logger> elements are not used in 5.5; remove both of them.

The above is wrong; docBase should be "testapp"; you must never have an empty docBase.  A
bug in prior levels of Tomcat occasionally caused something useful to happen when you did
that, but it was an accident.

Note that putting <Context> elements in server.xml is strongly discouraged; the proper
location is in a webapp's META-INF/context.xml file, or in conf/Catalina/[host]/[appName].xml.
 Also, if you're defining the default webapp, it should be named ROOT.  Read the Tomcat docs:
http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-5.5-doc/config/context.html
