I have downloaded the axis2.war file from the apache website.

I put it in the tomcat/webapps folder and it automatically creates a axis2 folder.

I open my web browser and navigate to and get the page that has services, validate and administration.

The problem is that if I click on any of the links a page with the apache logo is shown saying internal server error.

I have tried extracting the axis2.war my self and the file list is the same. the official apache website says that the axis2.war may not have unpacked correctly or it could be missing files. i have tries 1.6 and 1.5 of axis2 and still get the same error.

Can anyone explain what is causing this error and how to fix it ?

Accepted Answer

turns out that it was the security settings blocking AXIS2
