i have installed tomcat 6.0.20 today,after trying to run (startup.bat) at http://localhost:8080 it does not run
so i tried to change the connector port(in server.xml) but nothing happened , neither did i get a log message .

i have read somewhere to check the error by running catalina so i did and got the message below at command prompt :



according to error, JAVA_HOME should point to JDK , but path given is E:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_14
where it went wrong

morever i have set JAVA_HOME environment variable by



tomcat installed in : C drive
jdk installed in : E drive

so where lies the error everything is set to work ???

explain briefly

Dear tushar,

Check that you have set JAVA_HOME with quotes, because of the space in the path name. Thus:

C:\> SET JAVA_HOME="E:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_14"
