Dear everyone,
I installed tomcat 6 on my macbook and added it to my netbeans servers. When I try to start it from netbeans I get the error:

check whether the /Applications/apache-tomcat/bin/ startup script is executable

does anyone know which file I should use to start tomcat on mac os?

Does the file /Applications/apache-tomcat/bin/ exist? Is it executable?

I believe multiple files in the associated folder needed the setting, so I navigated to the folder and executed: chmod 755 *.sh
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
