Subject RE: tomcat won't start via remote ssh command
Date Thu, 13 Jan 2011 19:01:30 GMT
You can troubleshoot scripts by adding -x to the first line.

For example, the first line in unix shell scripts is usually:


Change that to 

#/bin/sh -x

That turns on echo so you can see each statement executed.

You may have to edit multiple scripts if one calls another.
