  • I’m sure you have your reasons for not using tomcat7, so I won’t ask.

    Seems like you may be missing some extra tomcat6 packages? Did you install the optional tomcat webapps package that provides ROOT?

Maybe you didn’t install Tomcat correctly.

Try and install another instance of Tomcat on your server, for example a version 7 will be nice. Or if your application only works on Tomcat 6 then leave your installation intact.
Anyway, I will still recomend you to install at least Tomcat 7 for your app to work.
You can check this fine tutorial.
