Subject Tomcat 6 log files missing
Date Thu, 01 Nov 2007 18:18:08 GMT

I have recently set up tomcat 6 on my windows box. 

Usually when I set up a new tomcat instance, log files (catalina.*,
manager,*. admin.*, ....) are automatically created in TOMCAT_HOME/logs. In
this case they are not. 

I have read the documentation here,
but this seems to be more aimed at users that want to change the logging
implementation, I just want the damn things to show up. I tried a couple
things from that page anyway and so far nothing has worked. 

I also noticed there is a in the conf folder which I
played with a bit. It looked like it was set up correctly in the first
place, but I thought maybe catalina.home was not set, so tried absolute path
to directory. This didn't work either. 

Are log files supposed to be created automatically or is there some step to
get them to go ? I don't care which implementation, but right now I have a
jsp error and no info on what is causing it. 

There is some logging going to STDOUT on startup, but nothing for my jsp
