I already tried an empty Context tag and no Context tag, makes no

Have you carefully checked your permissions on the context xml, and the actual directory where the application is deployed? I mean really carefully?

Subject: context doesnt pick up
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">
What Am I missing?
Reading the doc, which for the docBase attribute states:
"The value of this field must not be set unless the Context element is
defined in server.xml or the docBase is not located under the Host's


I suspect that if you examined the logs you would find an error message
related to deployment of the test webapp.

If all you have in the <Context> element is the docBase and your webapp is
located in the <Host>'s appBase directory, you don't need a <Context>
element at all.
