Wilfire 2.4.0 on Tomcat 5.5.12

I am trying to run WildFire 2.4.0 on Tomcat 5.5.12 using JVM 1.5.0_05-83 (as confirmed by tomcats environmental report) on Mac OSX 10.4.3

I downloaded the .war provided in the download area and let Tomcat deploy the app. I set up the WildFire home directory using TomCat administrator to set up the environmental variable, and I also tried using the .xml file as outlned in the web application installation instructions.

However, I get the following error when I try to use the application:


exception

I’'m sort of lost. Any ideas would be super helpful.

I tried this using a Windows XP SP2 PC using JVM 1.5.0_06-b05 on Tomcat 5.5.12 (this is a default fresh install, nothing custom or funky) and I’'m getting the same error.

Update though: The first load gives the error above the second load results in 404 (both configurations, mac and windows)

Is there something I have to do other than deploy the WAR file? If for some reason it can’'t find the wildfirehome would that cause this? Has anyone else experienced an issue like this?
