Alfresco 3.2 WAR on Tomcat 6

Hi all,

I'm trying to get Alfresco 3.2r2 community installed into an existing Tomcat 6 (on Gentoo, but using a download of Tomcat 6 installed into /opt/tomcat). As far as I can tell, Alfresco only picks up the alfresco-global.properties if I place it into webapps/alfresco/WEB-INF/classes. If I place it in shared/classes/alfresco/extension then it isn't read (or at least, Alfresco is unable to communicate with the database).

I've modified the shared.loader option in catalina.properties to be:

shared.loader=/opt/tomcat/shared/classes,/opt/tomcat/shared/lib/*.jar

But Alfresco seems unable to use the database configuration in alfresco-global.properties unless it's in the WEB-INF/classes directory.

Does anyone have any ideas what I need to change in the Tomcat/Alfresco config to get this working properly?

Thanks,
Sam.
