Changing name to alfresco.war makes Share login to fail

Hi there

We have an alfresco 3.0 configuration in our Ubuntu server, however we have changed the name in /tomcat/webapps of the alfresco.war and "alfresco" folder to "tomcat/webapps/instance1.war" and so the folder is "/tomcat/webapps/instance1". Alfresco Explorer works with no problem after this name change, however this makes Alfresco Share Login to fail.

I have been searching in the forum, and I have found that if you change the name of the folder and war file in tomcat/webapps from alfresco and alfresco.war for example to "instance1" and "instance1.war", then users will not be able to access the default installation of Alfresco Share as Alfresco Share will look for "http://localhost:8080/alfresco" which will not exist.

Which configuration files do I must modify to tell Share to access "http://localhost:8080/instance1" instead of "http://localhost:8080/alfresco".??

Thanks a lot in advance.
