I upgraded from 4.3 to 5.5.23 last week. I just noticed that nothing is being logged to the files in CATALINA_HOME/logs and I have been generation plenty of errors that should have been logged. CATALINA_HOME is set correctly, is there something else that needs to be set up to enable logging?

I'm answering my own question in case this shows up via a search.

Tomcat 5.5 does not automatically log to local host log as earlier tomcats did. For 5.5 you need to set up logging. The setup is simple (but not as simple as the no setup of earlier versions) and extremely flexible. See this page:
I agree. Here's the link:
