Subject Re: ROOT.xml problem
Date Fri, 01 Jun 2012 21:22:30 GMT
The ROOT.xml file is in the Catalina/localhost folder

Renaming the folder didn't work BTW.

I have the /corda folder located in the /webapps folder

I'd like the /corda to be the default app

when I don't have the ROOT.xml file, I can go to the browser and enter http://localhost/corda
and everything works fine

I'd like it to work so that when I enter http://localhost I get the corda as the default.
(without having to use the /corda in the URL)

I know there is a way to do this without renaming things to ROOT, that's what I'm looking
for.  How do I set up the ROOT.xml file so that it makes the /corda the default rather than
/ROOT as the default?
