Hi,

could anyone please tell me why I'm not able to start off tomcat version 5.5 on my computer? when I try to run it at command prompt:

C:\Program Files\jakarta-tomcat-5.0.16\Tomcat_Home\bin>startup

I'm getting an error as

'startup' is not recongnized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

what is I'm missing here?

thanks in advance.

The folder [tomcat_dir]\bin contains an exe file named tomcat5w.exe

You can use it to start/stop the server.

In addition to that, you can use Start-->All Programs-->Apache Tomcat-->Monitor Tomcat
You will see this application in the system tray. Right click on it and select "Start/Stop Server".

Is the extension "bat" set up to indicate an executable file on your machine? I believe that it is by default, but make sure it didn't get changed.
