Do you mean that no ontologies are listed in WebProtege for you to click
on? Or, do you mean that you are getting load errors when you try to
open an ontology?

You can put your ontologies wherever you want. However, you must
specify the exact location of the ontologies in the Protege server's
metaproject. This step is outlined on the wiki:
The "location" slot for instances of the Project class is where you
specify the location of your project. If you use relative paths, they
should be relative to where the Protege server is executing from (the
root directory of your Protege server installation).
Once you've edited your metaproject, you need to make a copy of the
project and paste it to webapps/webprotege/projects/metaproject and
restart your Servlet container. This step is also outlined on the wiki:
If you continue to have problems, it would be helpful for you to include
error messages from the log files of your Servlet container.
