Dear Emmanuel, (Yes I had tomcat6, then went to tomcat8, skipping tomcat7; and have inherited things.)
You seem to say that /etc/tomcat8/Catalina/localhost does not need to be writable by tomcat8, setting it so was useless (thus wrong). What about the /etc/tomcat8/Catalina directory, is there a need to set it writable? Is there a need to have these owned by group tomcat8, could they be left as root:root and world-accessible?
