Error when installing from WAR file:

Question asked by mbrpascoe on Jan 28, 2010
Hello,

I recently tried to install Alfresco using the war file at this link:

http://process.alfresco.com/ccdl/?file=release/community/build-2440/alfresco-community-war-3.2r2.tar.gz

After placing the war file in Tomcat's webapps directory I get the following error when Tomcat attempts to deploy the WAR file:

SEVERE: Error deploying configuration descriptor alfresco.xml
java.io.IOException: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Context path is required

What could cause this error?  I have not been able to find any info on it.

Any help is appreciated.
