help installing Tomcat on Windows NT 4.0

Hi,
I need explicit, up-to-date instructions on installing and configuring Tomcat 3.1 (or version directly related to the instructions) on Windows NT 4.0, without IIS running. I have not been able to find this on the internet. Why is it so difficult? It seems to me that Jakarta would provide up-to-date instructions?
Thank you,
Thomas Whalen


if you don't know, then ask. if you do know, then share. love is knowledge.

You will probably get more assistance with this in the Apache/Tomcat forum. I will move it there for you.

It's on their website.
http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/tomcat-3.2-doc/uguide/tomcat_ug.html

Unzip tomcat into a directory.
Add TOMCAT_HOME to your environment variables (doesn't matter between system or user), pointing it to the installation directory

Add JAVA_HOME to your environment variables (also doesn't matter), pointing to your JDK

And you're off to the races.

There are similar documents for Tomcat 3.3.x and the Tomcat 4.x document you would want to read is the RUNNING.txt file.

The start script tries the . and .. directories before giving up and saying "set CATALINA_HOME before trying to run me!"

Well.. it doesn't actually say that, but you get what I mean.
