Problem with hosting web application on tomcat / error 404 for an exists file
posted 10 years ago
Hi Thank you for reading my post. I have a web application which i developed and works well on my tomcat 5.5.9 Now i purchase a hosting plane with tomcat 5.5.9 it is on linux and have cpanel. they said that i should upload all contents of my war file into http_doc folder , so i did I used ftp to upload them all , now that i try to access my web site it return HTTP Status 404 - /index.jsp
meanwhile index.jsp in under that www folder. I test the server by uploading an html file to make sure that i put content of war file in correct place. nad it works ok with HTML file. can some one help me about this problem ?
This would be difficult for us to diagnose since it's probably a custom configuration of Tomcat. Many hosting companies have a forum of their own. The better ones will be visited often by hosting company staff. I would try with them first.
