I am having problem deploying a war file on tomcat4 its a apache module installed with ensim front end CP
I tried all kinds of hacks including adding unpackWARs="true" autoDeploy="true" liveDeploy="true"> within server.xml server.xml.template and server_vwh.xml but it still does not deploy
maybe anyone can help?

if you can't not deploy war file in tomcat4, you can manual extract war file in to webapps directory.

manual extraction would not do either but..
I got WARs deploy only way they do is :
if I issue sh then sh command within tomcat4/bin deroctory and then restart tomcat with service tomcat4 restart
I wonder if its the right way to get them deployed?
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
