We need someone with experience in Linux administration on a more or less regulary base. The first task he/she has to do to resolve a problem related with Tomcat. Tomcat was working before, but for some reason we can't find out it crashes now at start time. Error message: It complains that it can not create tomcat-users.xml.new. We assume that it is related with permissions ... but who knows. Important that the installed applications will continue to work, so a complete reinstallation must be done with great care. It is not impossible that the server was hacked. Logging in takes more time as usual. So, maybe finding the trojan will resolve the problem also.
1) exact description what was done in order to resolve the problem.
2) confirmation that you will not abuse the administrator rights we will give you in order to resolve the task.
