I have some jsp pages connecting to MySQL database. On my local machine I know the config difference moving from Tomcat 4.1 to 5.5 -- in 5.5 there's no need to edit server.xml and instead add a [web app dir]/WEB-INF/context.xml file. Also my application is deployed as a .war file in [tomcat dir]/webapps/
Now I'm using a hosting service (AnHosting.com), and recently they moved from Tomcat 4.1 to 5.5, and my MySQL connections are lost. Basically they share a server and Tomcat among several customers, and add this xml element in their server.xml on my behalf: <Host name="www.usmobilelink.com" appBase="/home/usmoliu1/public_html"> <Context path="" reloadable="true" docBase="/home/usmoliu1/public_html" debug="1"/>

sorry the message got posted before I finish ...
basically the hosting service added some directives in server.xml posting to my directory. And I couldn't get MySQL connection after several tries. Any idea how to fix it? The help desk at the service doesn't know but willing to do whatever I ask them.
