I expect you'll find the files in that directory are owned by root:root
and have permissions 0600. Read the file RUNNING.txt in the Tomcat
installation directory, particularly the section named "Advanced
Configuration - Multiple Tomcat 5 Instances" (note: filename and section
title correct for Tomcat 5.0.x so may be different for 5.5.x).

I expect that copying the conf, logs, shared, webapps, work & temp
directories (several of which are actually empty, ready to receive files
at runtime) from the installation to somewhere in your home directory and
setting CATALINA_BASE accordingly will sort the problem.
