Subject which subdirectories where ?
Date Mon, 08 Mar 2010 22:42:17 GMT

To the Tomcat developers :

In reference to the thread : Installation differences between 6.0.24 and 

It seems to me that one reason for David's confusion may be the lack of 
a clear indication in the documentation, of which subdirectories of a 
Tomcat installation are relative to CATALINA_HOME as opposed to relative 

When both are the same, then of course one knows where the subdirs 
"bin", "conf", "webapps", "lib" etc belong.
But if one decides to make CATALINA_BASE different from CATALINA_HOME 
(e.g. to run multiple Tomcat instances off the same executables), then 
it is not so clear to the uninitiated, which subdirectories belong under 

I can kind of guess for myself, but I do not have enough knowledge to 
provide a short and accurate description for each subdirectory, 
indicating why it should be here rather than there.

Maybe it is somewhere in the docs, but I have not found it yet.
