I assume when you say Linux 8 you actually meant Red Hat 8? Red Hat != Linux.

Now that I've got that out of the way It sounds like you are trying to run tomcat as a normal user. That's probably why you are getting permission errors. You should run it as root. It will switch to the tomcat4 user when it starts.

If you are running Red Hat the easiest way to start and stop tomcat is with the service program.

As root, try the "/sbin/service tomcat4 start" to start tomcat, "/sbin/service tomcat4 stop" to stop it.

Mike

We were starting tomcat as root..

Hmm, what is the "com.arsdigita.dispatcher.InitializerServlet", sounds like the problem may be in it, or it could be related to the "/WEB-INF/resources/enterprise.init".

The above errors sound like tomcat is having a problem setting up log4 J. Most of the time this has to do with it not finding the Log4J.properties file or what ever file you use to initialize it.

I've got to head out for a meeting in a few minutes. I will probably not be back until late this afternoon I hate to abandon you like this but, got to pay the bills

I'll check the board when I get back this afternoon though, in case your still having problems.

Mike

Okay, again I would take a look at the com.arsdigita.dispatcher.InitializerServlet and the enterprise.init file. It might just have an invalid path for the log4j parameters.
