Trouble getting the dhis.war webapp to deploy

Hello,

I was following the install instructions at:
http://208.76.222.114/confluence/display/DOC/Installing+DHIS+2 to get
DHIS up and running for some testing, and I'm having some trouble
starting dhis.war. Any assistance greatly appreciated!

Apache2, Tomcat, postgresql are all installed and appear to be happy. I
am able to successfully access the tomcat manager, and to deploy simple
sample .war apps with no problems.

However, when I try to deploy dhis.war, I get the following in
/var/log/tomcat6/catalina.2009-03-30.log:

From first glance, you may need to delegate authority. I seem to

remember having this issue on some version of Linux I was using where
by default, Tomcat was installed with a bit more security.

Try adding

grant codeBase "file:${catalina.home}/webapps/dhis/-" {
        permission java.security.AllPermission;
};

to your catalina.policy file, restart Tomcat, and see if that works. I
am just guessing though, but it might be worth a try.

Regards,
JPP
