Actually Tomcat did log an error message: SEVERE [Catalina-startStop-1] org.apache.catalina.startup.HostConfig.beforeStart Unable to create directory for deployment: /etc/tomcat8/Catalina/localhost But there is no other impact, the server works fine. The message can be disabled by setting the createDirs attribute of the Host element to false (it's true by default). http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-8.5-doc/config/host.html#Common_Attributes "createDirs: If set to true, Tomcat will attempt to create the directories defined by the attributes appBase and xmlBase during the startup phase. The default value is true. If set to true, and directory creation fails, an error message will be printed out but will not halt the startup sequence." __ This is the maintainer address of Debian's Java team <http://lists.alioth.debian.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/pkg-java-maintainers>.
