    Q: I get org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: The content of element type "web-app" must match
    A: web.xml must be a valid XML document with respect to its DTD. Either: 1) Your entries are ordered wrong, 2) Missing a required entry, or 3) You have entered an entry that does not exist in the DTD.
    Q: I can't get pages to work under /servlet/*
    A: See the Miscellaneous section. It should be answered there.
    Q: Help! My installation is corrupt!
    A: If you downloaded a tar.gz (tgz) file, make sure you use GNU tar when extracting the files. tar from proprietary Unixes probably won't work. For windows users - pkunzip doesn't work either, use WinZip.
    Q: I got: Too many open files
    A: This is a unix thing. Unix can limit (or tweak) a process by various parameters. To change these, look at ulimit.
