Hi All When I put the context in server.xml it works fine, but if I put the same context tag in a xml file under /conf/Catalina/localhost/test.xml then tomcat doesn't pick it up. I would rather want to use the latter.
The test.xml is <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <Context docBase="/opt/tomcat/webapps/test"> Its a set up where the tomcat user has no write access to /webapps only read. The war has been exploded to /webapps/test. Auto deployment is disabled. In server.xml I have autoDeploy="false" deployOnStartup="false", unpackWARS="false". The tomcat user only has read access to /conf/Catalina/localhost/test.xml. Its tomcat 8 on linux. What Am I missing?
