tomcat startup on boot


Hi,

I am using Debian and have a startup script setup, which if I add echo commands, I can see that it runs. The problem is that tomcat does not startup when I add it's startup script. Does anyone have this working, or know what I am doing wrong?

Cheers
malbery

Ooops. My mistake. I was missing environment variables (like JAVA_HOME).

Re: tomcat startup on boot

What does "ls -al /usr/share/jakarta-tomcat-5.0.29/bin/startup.sh" give you? (wrong permissions?)

Sorry Sepero, stupid of me. This works script works:

$ cat /etc/init.d/rc.local
#!/bin/sh
PATH=$PATH:$HOME/bin:/usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2_05/bin
JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2_05
export PATH
export JAVA_HOME
/usr/share/jakarta-tomcat-5.0.29/bin/startup.sh
