Hi all!

I have Fedora 6 and apache-tomcat-5.5.25 installed in /usr/local. and jdk1.5.0_09 in same /usr/local. I have set jdk path in etc/profile and is showing correctly.
I have set JAVA_HOME as /usr/local/jdk1.5.0_09.

but when I am starting tomcat by command-
su - tomcat -c /usr/local/apache-tomcat-5.5.25/bin/startup.sh

it is showing following error-
Using CATALINA_BASE: /usr/local/apache-tomcat-5.5.25
Using CATALINA_HOME: /usr/local/apache-tomcat-5.5.25
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: /usr/local/apache-tomcat-5.5.25/temp
Using JRE_HOME: /usr/local/jdk1.5.0_09
touch: cannot touch `/usr/local/apache-tomcat-5.5.25/logs/catalina.out': Permission denied
/usr/local/apache-tomcat-5.5.25/bin/catalina.sh: line 273: /usr/local/apache-tomcat-5.5.25/logs/catalina.out: Permission denied

Whats wrong??

It looks like your tomcat user doesn't have permission to write to tomcat/logs.
Tomcat needs to be able to write to tomcat/logs and tomcat/work in order to function.

Also, we have a Tomcat forum for Tomcat questions.
I'll move this thread there for you.
