I have created a tomcat.sh file so that I can start and stop tomcat via the terminal. I placed the file inside the
/bin folder and performed
chmod u+x on it to make it executable.
But then when I try the command
tomcat start it just gives me the following:
Using CATALINA_BASE: /usr/share/tomcat7 Using CATALINA_HOME: /usr/share/tomcat7 Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: /usr/share/tomcat7/temp Using JRE_HOME: /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun-188.8.131.52/jre Using CLASSPATH: /usr/share/tomcat7/bin/bootstrap.jar:/usr/share/tomcat7/bin/tomcat-juli.jar touch: cannot touch '/usr/share/tomcat7/logs/catalina.out': Permission denied /usr/share/tomcat7/bin/catalina.sh: 538: cannot create /usr/share/tomcat7/logs/catalina.out: Permission denied
I'm a new to Linux. Please help me set up proper permissions for this. If not, then maybe I'll just move my tomcat folder elsewhere.
