I have a few webapps that were running on a Windows Tomcat, 5.5.17. I changed my server's os (to ubuntu) and basically thought that if I copied and pasted, Tomcat (5.5) would pick-up the webapps. Unfortunately it doesn't and I have to "deploy" a webapp via the Tomcat manager interface. (Well, at least it is working.)
What I am doing now is basically trying to secure my Webalizer stats behind a login system. When I login successfully, the webapp copies the Webalizer files (png, html, etc files) in a temp directory under the webapp directory and redirects me to these files. This used to work ok but now it doesn't; I suspect it may be the same issue as I mentioned above?
I tried setting <Context reloadable="true"> in context.xml but that didn't work as I found out it is meant for class and lib files.
I think I'm looking for a way of forcing Tomcat to reload directory structures/files automatically? (clearly I don't know even how to describe this quirk)
Any help would be much appreciated!

I am replying to myself because I'm stupid, it was yet another group permission issue, ubuntu-related
