    Could you give me the differents owners about the tomcat directories in Plesk because I have a probleme since last upgrade (and Plesk don't support his bugs!!!)

    I have for example :
    /var/lib/tomcat4/psa-users root:nogroup

    I uninstall tomcat and reinstall it and this is the same.

    I can start tomcat and upload .war but the .war don't start and I have in log :
    unvalable or unreadable .war !!

    This is the same with all .war and all domains !!!
    And my box support unzip of course.

    Please help me

    thank you

    Well, could you say me what is the owners of your directories and tomcat files (have you tomcat4:nogroup and root:nogroup like me ?)

    And this is the catalina logs :

    Mar 29, 2007 3:09:56 PM org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11Protocol start
    INFO: Starting Coyote HTTP/1.1 on http-9080

    java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Invalid or unreadable WAR file : /usr/share/tomcat4/psa-webapps/domain.tld/appli.war

    Well, the .war file is good, and this is the same think with all .war files and all domains !!!

    Each time I do an upgrade, each time there are bugs ! I never see a panel with many bugs like plesk and we must pay to support with the bugs !!! So i try to find help witout plesk ! I asked but they said to pay to have support !!!

    Thanks for help
