I have gone through many posts to understand how to host and launch new HTML files under a Geoserver installation like this: Geoserver static file path
I have saved a test.html file under \GeoServer 2.7.0\data_dir\www\
And when I tried to access that file from http://localhost:8080/geoserver/web/test.html , I get:


NOT_FOUND RequestURI=/geoserver/web/test.html

Powered by Jetty://

How to resolve this? Did I save the file in the wrong location? Should I do something else to get this working?

The request should be: http://localhost:8080/geoserver/www/test.html

Make also sure that your data directory is really \GeoServer 2.7.0\data_dir

See for more info: https://docs.geoserver.org/latest/en/user/tutorials/staticfiles.html

  • Yes, It has worked. I have been trying lot of things to get it. Appreciate your help. Commented May 20, 2015 at 7:08
