Just (tried again to) upgrade from 7.x to 8.x and am getting this error at startup.
I tried upgrade to the eap some time back and got the same error but could never get it resolved.
The directory listed on the error page is "/var/lib/tomcat7/../logs". Really? Teamcity wants to write directly to "/var/lib/logs"? Or something inside /var/lib/logs? If so what directory?
The help page linked to from error page (http://confluence.jetbrains.net/display/TCD8/TeamCity+Server+Logs) indicates that logging can be
configured via "../conf/teamcity-server-log4j.xml". I cannot find this file from any of the tomcat7 locations.
This is all on ubuntu runnign as a war in tomcat7. Any help would be appreciated as our teamcity is now fully down.
