I have been working on an webapp in Intellij for a little while, as a way of learning java/grails (I am really new to this). Running the local tomcat that starts when I run my app is fine, but for different reasons I need to deploy it to a remote tomcat server. I added an remote tomcat server under Run -> Edit configurations, connecting with sftp which works fine, but when I try and run my app, a window with my remote configuration show up with an error message saying "Application Server not specified". Which it isn't. When I press the configure button next to it I get a window which wants me to input the path to Tomcat home and base directory. What is this? Why do I have to have a local tomcat installation if I am trying to deploy to a remote destination? Is there something obvious I am missing? (Probably). See attached picture.

This is an IntelliJ question, not a Tomcat question.

Moving to the IDEs forum.
With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
