The easiest/safest way to transport a webapp to another Tomcat is like this:

  1. "cd" to the tomcat/webapps directory or wherever the webapps have been deployed.

  2. If there is both a "Profiler" and an "Profiler.war" file in that directory, delete "Profiler.war" after taking a backup. Tomcat always uses the exploded WAR if it sees both plain and exploded webapps in its directory, so the existing war isn't what's actually being used.

  3. Create a new WAR from the exploded WAR, by using the following command "jar -cvf Profiler.war Profiler". This should JAR (ZIP) up the WAR into a warfile.

  4. Transfer the WAR file to the new Tomcat's webapps directory.

  5. Also copy the Profiler.xml to the new Tomcat's conf/Catalina/localhost. Change any options which need changing. For example, you might want the copy to talk to a different database.
