Deploying a .war application on a tomcat server
I am trying to deploy my hello.war file (Java application) on my tomcat server.
At first I do it from the "Manager App" on tomcat's default page, and it shows off afterwards in the Applications section. (Attached below circled in red)
But when I try to connect to it by clicking on that link (https://ip-address/hello) it gives me a standard "HTTP Status 404 – Not Found" with the description: "The origin server did not find a current representation for the target resource or is not willing to disclose that one exists." (picture below)
I even try putting my hello.war file manually in the server in the appropriate folder location ("/opt/tomcat/apache-tomcat-9.0.33/webapps") and add read, execute permissions to 'others' on the .war file, add user 'tomcat' as the owner of the file, restart the service. But still nothing seems to help and I still get that 404
