Deployment of Tomcat7 WAR

view full story

http://serverfault.com – I ran dpkg -l tomcat 7 | grep webapp to find the directory where to place my WAR file. When I dumped my ROOT.war to this directory, the corresponding ROOT directory was populated (exploded is the term, I think). Then, I restarted (stop, then start) tomcat. However, I navigated to localhost on port 8080, but I had the same default Apache homepage. Please advise. (HowTos)
