Description helix84 2010-03-26 16:14:47 UTC
1) Please, briefly describe what a keystore is.

2) typo: "withinthe" => "within the"

3) Document that keystore password cannot be empty. Mention following scenarion in the Troubleshooting section:

I created my keystore using "openssl pkcs12 ..." and entered an empty password. After restarting Tomcat, catalina log contained "java.io.IOException: failed to decrypt safe contents entry: java.lang.ArithmeticException: / by zero"

Thanks for the encouragement but I'm really not able to do it :)
I'm not familiar with Tomcat, this is only what I stumbled upon trying to set it up.

The following changes have been made in 7.0.x and will be included in 7.0.20 onwards:
1 - added explanatory test to the quick start section
2 - fixed
3 - improved cross-reference to configuration
    no changes to trouble shooting (want to keep that to common issues)
I also fixed some other issues in the docs.
