I have Tomcat 4.1 on my local Windows workstation and on the Windows Web Server. Now I am going to deploy my application onto the Web Server.
Just want to make sure I have my steps correct: I created a war file in my webapps directory which is called projects: \Local_Tomcat_Home\webapps\projects\projects.war
Now I send the projects.war to the Server Admin where he will put it in the Server Tomcat Home webapps directory: \Server_Tomcat_Home\webapps\projects.war
Then, since this is Tomcat 4.1.3 he will have to go into the Server_Tomcat_Home\bin\ directory and hit the shutdown.bat and startup.bat commands.
The result should show my deployed projects folder in the server webapps directory and my web application should be ready to work on the Tomcat container as this: \Server_Tomcat_Home\webapps\projects [ February 24, 2007: Message edited by: Joseph Smithern ]
I can't see any problem except the first step. It will be better if you not create the projects directory in the webapps. Create it outside the tomcat installation. When you put the war file in the webapps directory it will be automatically extracted to a forder with name <war_name_without_ext>. I hope unpackWars attribute for the <Host> tag is true in your server.xml.
