    Where can I find error logs for Tomcat?


    Tomcat maintains verbose access and error logs. When a problem occurs in WebVoyage, a number of logs will be updated with the Java errors. These logs are particularly useful when troubleshooting problems that occur as a result of customizing WebVoyage. If you encounter the error_500.html page, check the Tomcat logs at:


    The useful files to check will be the vwebv.YYYY-MM-DD.log and catalina.out logs. Amidst the long list of java errors, look for the messages around “Root Cause” and “Caused by:” lines. You can, at times, get very clear feedback such as ‘The string "--" is not permitted within comments.’ Errors like these will get you started tracking down the source of the problem.
