All of a sudden my liferay portal started displaying the Tomcat home page upon startup instead of my portals welcome page. For the life of me I can't figure out how its doing this. I can't find any occurrence of Tomcat's index.html in the liferay directories.

This is on my development environment so I was simply referencing http:/localhost:8080 to get the portal welcome page. Now I get tomcat's homepage. All other urls for my portal work fine.

I do have other Tomcats installed but they never seem to be a factor in the past.

Its not a show stopper but I'd love to know what has changed.

If you have other tomcat installed on the system, it's probably taking port 8080.
It won't be a problem if these tomcat aren't started up or if they are using different ports.
You probably installed a new tomcat using the default port 8080.

And check if you've got a CATALINA_HOME environment variable definition; you might actually be loading a different tomcat...

No other tomcats are running when I run my portal.

This what I thought it was so I checked this in both my enviroment varibles and registry but didn't find a CATALINA_HOME in either.

If you used the Liferay Tomcat bundle, you shouldn't be getting Tomcat's home page. If you are, it means you do have some other Tomcat running.
Are you checking Liferay on the same computer that is running Liferay. If not, you may be accessing a different server. Try tracing your network.

It stop doing it but I never figured out what started causing it in the first place. I'm sure it was something goofy with another one of my tomcat installs.

I also had eclipse in the mix with both the liferay ide and an additional tomcat plugin for other apps I work.

I wasn't such a huge deal but I'm glad it stopped.

Thanks for every ones feedback.

You were having the problem running on Eclipse. Eclipse sometimes tend to complicate matters. emoticon
Glad to hear that it not happening now.

you probably have the "CATALINA_HOME' set to the other installation of tomcat, removing the environment variable would enable you to start the current tomcat server with properties from server.xml file.
