I have a directory named 'C:\projet\epfc' in my computer.
My server.xml is as follow :

<!-- Define properties for each web application. This is only needed
if you want to set non-default properties, or have web application
document roots in places other than the virtual host's appBase
directory. -->
<Context path="/epfc" docBase="../projet/epfc" debug="0"
reloadable="true"/>


<!-- Tomcat Root Context -->
<!--
<Context path="" docBase="ROOT" debug="0"/>
-->

<!-- Tomcat Examples Context -->

<Context path="/examples" docBase="examples" debug="0"
reloadable="true" crossContext="true">
<Logger className="org.apache.catalina.logger.FileLogger"
prefix="localhost_examples_log." suffix=".txt"
timestamp="true"/>
....and so forth
I'm running tomcat 4.1.x. when i write http://localhost:8080/epfc/index.html , it doesn't work. Why ?
And the best I have no errors when i run tomcat.
My index.html exists.
Thank you for help.

you are restarting Tomcat when you make changes to server.xml ?

what is the URL you are typing?

what is the error message in the browser?
are there any errors in any of these files:
stdout.log
stderr.log
localhost_log.2003-10-16.txt

does your projet/epfc directory contain a WEB-INF directory (MUST be all caps)?

Does the WEB-INF directory contain a web.xml file, that at minimum contains the following?:

Hi Mike,
thank you very much. You was right , i had a exception throw in the log file because of my web.xml file. Now it works fine.
Thanks again
