TurnKey Linux Virtual Appliance Library

Standalone Tomcat Appliance - no catalina log files


I have just downloaded the tomcat appliance (http://www.turnkeylinux.org/tomcat). All started up fine, pretty neat appliance. I have one question thought, there doesn't seem to be any logging enabled and I cannot see anything in the /var/logs/tomcat5.5/ but I fail to spot any override of the default logging configuration.

Any pointers appreciated.

We're using the default logging configuration

Maybe you didn't see any logs because you didn't do anything that would be logged? We didn't change the default logging configuration for the Tomcat appliance so unless there is a bug in the Ubuntu/Debian packaging it should work.

Thanks for the reply. As you

Thanks for the reply. As you mentioned Tomcat distribution was the issue with the default security policies https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/tomcat5.5/+bug/410379
