I have been deploying in Tomcat by placing my war file in the web apps directory and then bouncing tomcat and letting it expand the web app when it restarts. But suddenly, it quit expanding war files. I do not get any error messages, and I can deploy the same war files to other servers.
I have not made any changes to my Tomcat installation (that I am aware of). Does anybody have any ideas about why Tomcat would stop automatically expanding and deploying web apps? Is there a configuration setting that I may have indadvertantly changed?
Help!!!

Did you erase the previously expanded directory for the web application? Tomcat only expands a WAR if it does not see an equivalent directory.
