I want to put my index.jsp in this directory. /home/www
How should server.xml be setup? I keep getting 404 error or a blank page.
<Host name="localhost" appBase="/home/www"
<Context path="" docBase="/home/www" reloadable="true" />
tried a ton of configs. still don't work.

What do your error logs say? I'm guessing that the context couldn't be started for some reason. I usually have something more like:
<Host name="localhost" appBase="/home/www" unpackWARs="true" autoDeploy="true" xmlValidation="false" xmlNamespaceAware="false"> <Context path="" docBase="" reloadable="true" /> </Host>
note that the docBase of the Context is not a full path name. This just means that it inherits from the parent Host element.
Also, remember that you are creating web apps. You will want to have at least a WEB-INF directory with a
web.xml. A really short web.xml would be something like:
<?xml version="1.0"?> <!DOCTYPE web-app PUBLIC "-//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD Web Application 2.3//EN" "http://java.sun.com/dtd/web-app_2_3.dtd"> <web-app> <welcome-file-list> <welcome-file>index.jsp</welcome-file> </welcome-file-list> </web-app>
