I'm trying to deploy Alfresco Community Edition 2.1 WAR file in Apache Tomcat 5.5.23. I'm running Tomcat in a Redhat Enterprise 6.4 x86_64 server and also using MySQL 5.0.67.

I've almost followed the steps in

http://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/Installing_Alfresco_Community_WAR_on_Centos_5

except that I haven't installed Tomcat as an RPM package, but using a self-contained tar.gz package. Besides, I've copied "mysql-connector-java-5.0.7.jar" into $TOMCAT_HOME/common/lib.

I'm also running Tomcat as root to rule out permission issues. The catalina.out log file shows the following:

Alfresco 2.1 is practically stone age... Is there a reason why you're using such an old version? –  Gagravarr Dec 13 '13 at 0:01
    
There are backwards compatibility reasons for Java applications using Alfresco 2.1 API. –  ycedres Dec 20 '13 at 9:22
