Subject RE: Apache Tomcat 6.0 loads blank page
Date Sun, 01 Feb 2009 20:59:19 GMT
I am new to Tomcat as well... But, does mms_test contain WEB-INF with
web.xml, like other directories under webapps do? Try copy it from "docs"
and see what happens. Also, if you pull mms_test out of webapps and restart
tomcat, does the problem go away? Did you change server.xml from the

Hope this helps.

Subject: Re: Apache Tomcat 6.0 loads blank page

Hello all,

Thank you keshave for your answer. In fact my folder mms_test is already in
teh webapps directory and when I try accessing it using
http://localhost:8080/mms_test/index.html or just
http://localhost:8080/mms_test/. I get the same thing "blank page" nothing
is displayed. I am not sure what I need to do.

P, in response to your email, my folder is in mms_test not in root, should i
place it in root? also I am not sure exactly what you meant by
"'META-INF/context.xml'" because i don't have any directory called "META-INF
in webapps do i need to creat it? the context.xml is currently located in

I am getting a bit frustated here, I definitely appreciate your help with
this. also one more this i should mention, when restart the server couple of
times using
 sudo /etc/init.d/tomcat restart

I get this message:
Using CATALINA_BASE:   /usr/local/tomcat
Using CATALINA_HOME:   /usr/local/tomcat

But it doesn't change the problem: blank page again when I try to access

Your help is greatly appreciated

thank u kindly
