    Hi everyone,

    I have a war that is deploying to /warname. I would like to run it at /. I have tried following documentation for earlier versions, but that does not seem to work. The server.xml does not contain a context for /warname, but when I add it and restart, the server.xml is overwritten. As far as I know, in order to get tomcat to run your app as root, you need to put the context in the server.xml - it cannot be a context fragment file.

    I'm honestly becoming very frustrated with plesk getting in the way of this.

    Has anyone done this? How can I get this working?

    So in case anyone else runs across this issue, I ended up using .htaccess to rewrite to /warname.

    In your httpdocs folder:
    Code:
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
       RewriteEngine on
       RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /warname/$1   [L]
    </IfModule>
    and in your application's root:
    Code:
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
       RewriteEngine off
    </IfModule>

    Actually we use the NGASI application automation solution that has a GUI to
    easilty configure application level virtual hosting.
