tomcat7 host manager does not add new domain as a host- “Failed to create AppBase”

Hello all,

I have installed Tomcat7 in my Ubuntu 12.04 x64 VPS.

Now I am trying to add a new domain via HostManager.

However, this is the error I am getting--

FAIL - Failed to create appBase [/var/lib/tomcat7/domain.com] for host [domain.com]
I even created a custom folder--> set its permissions to 777, and then gave that folder as the App Base Path for the new domain(in Host Manager)-- however even then I am getting the same error message as above.

What am I doing wrong here? How do I add the new domain correctly in Tomcat7 Host Manager?

Thanks,
Arvind.

I do not think you understand the difference between an Internet Domain and a web application. Tomcat does not manage Domains, it manages applications. The Domain is completely external to Tomcat.


Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
