Hi Guys,
I've been usinf Tomcat for a while now, but last week I wiped out my box and re-installed everything. Now after installing tomcat 3.2.4 and JDK 1.3.1_02, I can't get it to run.
I've checked and re-checked my classpath and other settings and can't figure it out. I know it is something stupid....can you guys help? On startup, I get an error from Tomcat as follows:NoClassDefFoundError: org/apache/tomcat/logging/Logger
Any ideas?

Using Tomcat 4, I can get Tomcat started. Now when I try to run a JSP, I get the same error as previous.
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/apache/tomcat/logging/Logger
I'm guessing I'm missing something in my classpath, but can't figure out what??
I agree. Here's the link:
