Setting Up a Scratch Directory

The default Tomcat Server page is default.jsp. The Web Server tries to access a scratch directory to handle the jsp. If there is no scratch directory set up, you will get exceptions in the Web Server logs. This procedure explains how to set up a scratch directory for Tomcat and iPlanet servers.

Testing the Tomcat Web Server Installation

Use the following procedure to test your configuration.

To test the Tomcat Web Server installation

  1. Start the Tomcat Server by executing the following command:


  2. Open a Web browser and attempt to browse to the location where you have installed Analytics Web. In the example, the URL is:

    http://<Server Name>:8080/analytics

    If you see a login page, you have successfully installed Analytics Web.

    NOTE:  The port number (in the example procedure, 8080) is that on which a default installation of Tomcat 4.x listens. If your installation of Tomcat uses a different port, you need to change this value.
