Problems Starting Tomcat5

The RPM installs to /usr/share/. If you use the TAR, the guide installs to /usr/local. This is intentional.

Kind regards,

In looking over the documentation, I see that different paths are cited if
you install using the tars or the RPMs. One speaks to /usr/local, the
other /usr/share.

Could this be a problem?

Hello sir!

I am back at work on this project again.

I started with a brand new install of CentOS 5.7, and followed the
instructions in the Djigzo quickstart guide.

I did have one hiccup with rebuilding the JAR repositories in the second
and third commands in step 3.4; the directories didn't exist and I got an
error message about that. Creating the directories appeared to correct
that problem. Otherwise things seemed to come off well until I got to
step 3.5 and tried to log into the web GUI. The connection was refused,
nothing is listening on the 8443 port and I'm getting exactly the same
error thrown as the last install.

Whatever I'm doing wrong, at least I am consistent!

I am going back through the longer installation guide looking for
something I have missed.

Zitat von John Preisach <jpreisach(a)>:


I am a new user and just installed Djigzo 2.0.1 on a CentOS 5.5 system.

Things seem to be fairly straight, except for an error that I have been
beating my head against all day.

Does anyone have any idea what might be going on here, please?

Thank you in advance,

I'm neither Java nor Tomcat expert but have you checked the installation
dokuments from especially page 18
and following for using Tomcat on RedHat CentOS?
It looks like some config of Tomcat is missing or some additional
software required is not installed.

It seems they were using some non standard Tomcat configuration. They
are going to do a fresh install using the installation guide.

Kind regards,
