I recently installed tomcat6 with apt-get and have got it up and running. Ubuntu doesnt set the $CATALINA_BASE and $CATALINA_HOME environment variables during the install. How can I locate these directories, so I can manually set them?
Both are stored and can be set in
/etc/default/tomcat6. By default, CATALINA_HOME is
/usr/share/tomcat6, and CATALINA_BASE is
In either Tomcat6 or Tomcat7 installed with Apt-Get, find the declarations of CATALINA_HOME and CATALINA_BASE, in /etc/init.d/tomcat6 or tomcat7, and EXPORT them to the OS variables. They are then visible on a ENV command. and for use by other software.
I have ubuntu v10. And I have tomcat v6 installed at which is at /usr/lib/tomcat6/...
Answer: In my system, both variables are stored in /etc/init.d/tomcat6
