Hi all
I have installed the Apache-Tomcat 4.0 on windows 2000.My tomcat works very well for a few days and suddenly when I try to startup the Tomcat server,the startup window just flickers displaying nothing and the server does not start.I am not sure if any body has the same problem as mine and please help me solve this problem.

First place to look at are the log files generated by Tomcat. You should find them in the logs directory(under the Tomcat installation directory). They should be able to offer a clue as to what's going on.
