Hi Wolfgang,
I got everything in /opt/jakarta-tomcat-5.0.28 owned by root:root.
So you mean, I should change all files in the conf subdirectory to be 
owned by wwwrun? Or is it better/safer to just make those files world 
readable/writeable and leaving them owned by root:root?

When, during installation of Tomcat should I have changed the ownership 
or permissions of which files? I've installed Tomcat using
   cd /opt
   sudo tar xzf /tmp/jakarta-tomcat-5.0.28.tar.gz
so that I got everything owned by root:root.
