WebAPI could not be started


Hi Everyone - I’ve read through all the threads on this forum but nothing works that’s been suggested. I’m trying to install WebAPI using these instructions.

I’ve got a postgresql database running on a headless ubuntu box that is also running tomcat. I’m successfully accessing the tomcat manager from another computer - but when I go to upload and deploy my WebAPI.war file I get

FAIL - Application at context path [/WebAPI] could not be started
FAIL - Encountered exception [org.apache.catalina.LifecycleException: Failed to start component [StandardEngine[Catalina].StandardHost[localhost].StandardContext[/WebAPI]]]

I’ve tried changing localhost to in my settings.xml file with no luck. I know the postgresql database is running properly because I can access it through a separate db query tool.

Any thoughts? Thanks.
