When I start up Tomcat,I receive the following message in command prompt syntax error Using CATALINA_BASE: C:\Apache\Tomcat Using CATALINA_HOME: C:\Apache\Tomcat Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: C:\Apache\Tomcat\temp Using JAVA_HOME: C:\jdk1.3 My tomcat version is 4.1.30.The java command prompt disappears in a few seconds. Kindly reply as early as possible.
Hi, Can you also check the error log of TOMCAT? It should be located in %CATALINA_HOME%\logs\ When you start it, check the file with time that is same as your startup time. I remember there is a log called cataline.log for all server logs. Nick.
This sort of thing comes up all the time - the startup.bat normally causes execution of catalina.bat in a new window - if catalina.bat fails, the new window closes and you lose the error messages. My suggestion is to 1. change the line in startup.bat from
2. Do NOT execute startup.bat by double clicking on it - instead, open a command prompt window, change to the TOMCAT_HOME/bin directory and execute startup.bat there. This should preserve whatever error message in the open window. Bill
