Cannot get it running on my Linux

I've followed all the steps that were specified in the installation instruction.
However, when I tried to start tomcat, I always got the following message:

java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Circular variable reference detected while parsing input [${log.dir} --> ${log.dir}]

Could some one kindly give me some hint about what is going on?

    What do you have specified for the Log directory path in the datainfo.properties in the openclinica.config directory?

    Hi John,

    Just faced this issue a few minutes ago.
    Solution: Give all variables in your datainfo.properties an actual value.

    So instead of using log.dir=${log.dir} use log.dir=log.dir=${catalina.home}/logs/openclinica-ws .

    I also have the same problem in my Windows and I tried changing the value of log.dir to log.dir=log.dir=${catalina.home}/logs/openclinica-ws but still, get the same error. Please help, thanks.
