http://mamamusings.net/archives/2004/04/28/installing_tomcat_5_on_os_x.php
i use the command line of

/usr/local/tomcat/bin/startup.sh

i am logged on as root as well so i get the successful:

sh-2.05b# /usr/local/tomcat/bin/startup.sh
Using CATALINA_BASE: /usr/local/tomcat
Using CATALINA_HOME: /usr/local/tomcat
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: /usr/local/tomcat/temp
Using JRE_HOME: /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.4.2/Home


when i do the http://localhost:8080
i get the cannot connect to server message.

Installing Tomcat is as simple as unpacking the .tar file which you should obtain from the official download site.

I wrote a document on installing Tomcat which you can find here.
