WAR one war won't unpack but others do

Hi

I copied my WAR onto my server and it unpacked and worked fine. I later manually deleted the director and have since copied back the WAR but it won't unpack. And even if I unpack it manually Tomcat won't says the application is unavailable

All other wars unpack and work fine.

What could be stopping it? I've been pulling my hair out!

Thanks

Kris

I would certainly check the log files for error messages.

How are you starting Tomcat? I always run startup.bat from a command prompt window so I can see error messages fly by!
