I am running a servlet deployed in tomcat in ec2 instance. The servlet has to create a folder in webapps dir. But this is not created, however I am able to create folders with mkdir command inside webapps. What is the user for the tomcat/servlet? should I manke any permission settings? I am also unable to see the servlet debugging console, where could I see this.
