That’s a BAD TomCat!

So I was screwing around with TomCat, thinking of using it to replace Orion which is the web server I run. I made a symlink to the vonnieda.org web application in TomCat, started up and installed it. I played with it a bit in the manager thing and decided to “remove” it, thinking this would remove the information from TomCat’s configuration about vonnieda.org.

Oh no.

The page was taking much longer to come back than I expected it to so I quickly kill -9ed TomCat. Not before it had deleted most of my web site, including all the photography.

I had a backup of course, but backups are never as good as the original so let me know if you find anything missing.

Not even a warning. Damn.
