I recently installed Tomcat 6 on Ubuntu 9.10 and when trying to stop the tomcat server, I was receiving an error.
I was issuing the statement
and received an error, including:
Catalina.stop: java.io.FileNotFoundException: /usr/share/tomcat6/conf/server.xml
To get around this, I used a different command to stop and start the server:
$ sudo service tomcat6 stop
$ sudo service tomcat6 start
Hope others find this useful.
