Subject Re: Installing Bugzilla on the Apache Tomcat 6
Date Tue, 10 Aug 2010 17:23:21 GMT

Hi Chris,

thank you for the feedback - I appreciate it! Seriously, I believe I am the first person on
the Internet to write some consistent post (maybe you'll prove me wrong), so it's better be
perfect! ;-)

To make one thing clear - the post was based on the large script I prepare for my master thesis
(automatic deployment of the lightweight project hosting). This is the reason why some parts
contain "weird things" (empty echo - there used to be output to the file, .html/.jsp welcome
files - I need them in my situation).

While I understand the first note is a bit strange, I didn't want to include steps "How to
install tomcat". The improper thing is installing the server in the "demo" dir in the home
dir and not paying any attention to any configuration. Anyway, I assume users already have
the Tomcat installation (if not, they should definitely use classic Apache server for BZ),
so I will fix the post in this direction and I will use $CATALINA_HOME to reference Tomcat
location in the text.

About the context.xml file - yep, you are right, I will fix it...

WIth best regards,

Petr Dvorak
