      Starting Liferay Portal Enterprise Edition 5.2.5 (Augustine / Build 5205 / August 6, 2009)

      Notice that only the portal-ext.properties defined in the <liferay> home folder is recognized (and it is recognized even twice), while the portal-ext.properties in the <tomcat>/webapps/ROOT/WEB-INF/classes directory is not loaded.

      If you run startup.sh from the <tomcat> directory or the <tomcat>/bin directory, the problem does not occur.
