Hello,

If the server Linux crash and restart, Alfresco will not start because the PID file exists.
service alfresco restartUsing CATALINA_BASE:   /opt/Alfresco/tomcat
Using CATALINA_HOME:   /opt/Alfresco/tomcat
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: /opt/Alfresco/tomcat/temp
Using JRE_HOME:        /opt/Alfresco/java
Using CLASSPATH:       /opt/Alfresco/tomcat/bin/bootstrap.jar
PID file (/opt/Alfresco/tomcat/temp/catalina.pid) found but no matching process was found. Stop aborted.
/opt/Alfresco/tomcat/scripts/ctl.sh : tomcat could not be stopped

Why this has been done like this ? Could be not better to automaticly remove this file and write a message in the logs ?
Could I add a command to remove this file in /etc/init.d/alfresco before the start of alfresco without risk ?

Thank you.
