Hi, guys; I am just starting to learn how to use servlets. I tried to install Apache web server on my computer (wind98) but I could not get it working for me. After installation, I tried to start the server and in dos console it showed the message: Apache running...... When I tried to access http://localhost:8080 via internet explorer, i got the error message: cannot access localhost:8080 offline. What was wrong? anybody out there using Apache server, please help!
At least in order to run Servlets or JSPs, but need Tomcat or some other Servlet engine. But after installing and starting Apache, you should be able to point to localhost (NOT port 8080, but simply port 80, the default HTTP port), and see Apache's default website. -Mirko

I did not install TomCat, but I did install ServletExec AS3.0 from AtlantaSoftware. Do you need to start ServletExec (an servlet engine) before you run the browser? How do you start it? Do you need to configure it ? Thanks in advance

Yes, you need to start your servlet engine before hitting the URL, and you also need to configure it. The configuration details depend on your webserver and servlet engine, no idea how this works in ServletExec. There should be instructions, though. -Mirko
