I have just installed WS 7 on our stage server. The test server was done some months ago. I have deployed the same applications to stage as on test.

One application is causing me problems. I call the login servlet but the result is an 'Internal Server Error' message. From my logs I can see that the servlet processed the log in successfully and redirects to a JSP. That is the last message. I can find no further info in any of the other standard out/err logs.

I have tried creating a simple JSP containing only HTML - same error. If I rename the file to test.html, it displays correctly. The plugin configuration appears to be identical with the one on the test server (where everything works)

Ideas anyone?

Problem is now solved.

The installation process created a default server. I had ignored this thinking that it doesn't matter. I removed the server and regenerated the plug-in config and my app works fine.
