Tomcat HTML placement

Tomcat question: I was told by my organization that we can't proxy root level documents like /index.html.
They said everything must be pushed down at least one level. i.e. http://sxmcifscs/fscs/index.html

I don't understand what directory changes are needed.
Tomcat has the directory structure:
with HTML going in the ROOT directory.
Where am I supposed to place the HTML files?
Do I have to change server.xml or web.xml?

Just create a folder named fscs at the context root if you want to keep the web app as the root web app.

Or... are you wanting to make the entire web app move to the /fscs context path?
