You might as well consider getting the latest version of Tomcat while you're at it, and then
moving your webapps to that new installation.

You will want to check the customizations (if you made any) in web.xml, server.xml, tomcat-users.xml
and anything under conf/Catalina/localhost that you placed there intentionally in the 2003
Tomcat installation.

Don't forget to use the same service account, if you created one.

You will also want to check the 2003 tomcat7w.exe for any custom options you used there, like
memory settings, etc.


HI Leo 
Thanks for the reply and info :)

Can I just copy the folder/files you mention and put in the new installation on the 2008 server

As for a service account I have no idea if one exists  as this was installed about 5 yrs ago
and no one is left in the company that knows anything about it - Hence why I'm on this :)
