http 404 error


I've created a .html footer file with black background which should show up in the webpage.But when I access the page,the place(footer part) in the webpage where I should get a black background returns me a http 404 error code

HTTP Status 404- /footer/footer.html
type status report
message /footer/footer.html
description The requested resource (/footer/footer.html) is not availble).

So,is that something to do with the file access permissions that tomcat is failing to get??

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

The correct place to get an answer is your web server's error log. (Should be catalina.out in your case.)

Is the footer file contained within a folder called footer ?
If so, is that folder one under the level of the document root ?
Remember that /anything means in the document root ...

Unless the directory footer is in the folder /www/html/footer (or equivalent) then the path to that folder is wrong and 404 is a natural response. Don't look for problems where things are not in the correct place.

This isn't a tomcat error, it is a straight-forward apache error.

I've the footer in the tomcat sub-directory that was shipped with the application. something like

/opt/..../tomcat/.../apps/footer/footer.html.

I've another html file(that came with the installation of the application) in the same directory as the footer.html which shows back in the browser.

Are the permissions and ownership (group and user) the same for both files?

here is the ls -la output to the file I'm worried about

-rwxrwxrwx 1 rmaddali rmaddali 132 Feb 4 15:50 footer.html
-rw-rw-r-- 1 root root 721 Feb 4 16:04 l_footer.html

footer.html is the file I created and trying to embed that in the webpage,which inturn gets 404 problem.

l_footer.html is the application file which shows up in the webpage.

any ideas?

Have you tried copying the contents of footer.html to I_footer.html ?

yes I tried that and it worked.However, the footer I need to work with is different from the l_footer

l_footer is just a one line display at the bottom of the webpage. Custom footer.html I need to implement is to replace the portion of the webpage.

so,is that something to do with the access permission??

Well if you give that file identical permissions as the I_footer file then you can find out.
Personally, I would imagine that tomcat only sees the I_footer file as the valid file to include. You could try renaming your footer to I_footer2.html and give it the same permissions as I_footer.html. But it is just easier to replace the contents of I_footer with the contents of your footer file.

Which log directory are you talking about? (The one under $CATALINA_HOME?)

And are you front-ending Tomcat with Apache web server? If so, this is simple - check Apache web server's error log. If not, we need to figure out where catalina.out is in your "custom" install.
