but now: there isn't a file named like my application in the .../localhost directory.
What puzzles me is, that the application is running fine if i put it in $HOME/webapps, that i can configure it in the admin app, but i can't see where these settings get stored. I even did a full grep on the whole tomcat directory for my appname - nothing.
I simply want to put the webapp tree for the application into the userdirectory of this customer without giving him access to the rest of tomcat.
Are there any common practises on this subject? Problem looks rather trivial to me, i hope the solution is trivial as well.
All i can find by googling are examples with drive letters in the paths, so i assume thats nothing i could use in a production environment.
