WebApp: Error 404 I shut down my Linux box without stoping Tomcat when it came back up I get the above error msg regardless of what page I try to load. Web-application not yet deployed. Any idea as to how to fix this?
Without seeing it, only guesses. Check the tomcatx/webapps directory to see if your webapps are there and if they have been unpacked. Check the server.xml file for context definitions. Just shutting down the OS shouldn't make anything disappear unless the way you shut down the OS involved yanking the power cord out of the box and having the system come up deleting damaged files. Still, a clean Tomcat shutdown is preferable so you can have the apps flush their file caches and so forth.
Some people, when well-known sources tell them that fire will burn them, don't put their hands in the fire.
Some people, being skeptical, will put their hands in the fire, get burned, and learn not to put their hands in the fire.
And some people, believing that they know better than well-known sources, will claim it's a lie, put their hands in the fire, and continue to scream it's a lie even as their hands burn down to charred stumps.
