I'm running Tomcat on OS X Server 10.6.6 under the normal Web component that comes with the OS. This has worked fine so far, but I need to add some entries to the
$PATH environment variable for programs that I want access to from the web server (more specifically, I'm running Hudson under Tomcat which needs access to build tools that I have installed).
Tomcat and the Web component seems to run under the user _appserver which has a different
$PATH than the administrator account.
What's the proper way to add a global entry to the
$PATH in OS X Server for the Web component? Preferable it should be done only once so that both the _appserver and Administrator user can access the same
EDIT: Adding the path to
/etc/paths.d/somefile didn't work. Tomcat and Hudson does still not see those directories.
