idea tells me it cannot load the web.xml from .intellij8x/system/tomcat/unnamed_projectXXXXXXXXXXX/conf/web.xml
ther eason is that there is no web.xml, and if i put it there, it gts deleted. with idea 7, this worked. the project is the same, i just compied it to another drive and adjusted all directories (i think)

is this a known bug, or did i break something?

I can tell you that I am using Tomcat 6.0.18 with IDEA 9873 and it is starting up Tomcat successfully. The output at startup shows it using a CATALINA_BASE of C:\Documents and Settings\myUserName\.IntelliJIdea8x\system\tomcat\Unnamed_XXXXXXXX. Note that the web.xml within the conf directory is not my project's web.xml but tomcat's "default values for *all* web applications loaded into this instance of Tomcat." Hope that helps.

i probably messed up the caches, a fresh installation of maia can do it again

in my case, there is a file called "web0.xml" which looks like the default file. what's wrong here? my remaining working project broke after copying it to another drive, and i need to get ir running again
