About Restarting Tomcat

First, I want to how long does it often take tomcat to be restarted?
After I run sudo /opt/bitnami/ctlscript.sh restart, and check the status again with sudo /opt/bitnami/ctlscript.sh status, it said that tomcat is already running. But when I access the server, it returned 503 Service Unavailable.

Second, when I change the war file in webapps, how long it will be reflected? After a couple of hours, I cannot see my changes on the web app, so I try to restart Tomcat at the first place. Am I missing any settings for auto re-deployment?

I was able to fix it myself, it was wrong config in server.xml.
But thank you anyway. :+1:
