Hello!

I want help to install tomcat 5.5 on a Dedicated sever.
Do the parallel plesk panel provide java and tomcat installation and configuration on servers!

Actually I prefer dedicated servers for my web applications.
But they do not come with java & tomcat pre installed.

When I consult on forums I was told the tomcat we use on our PC is for development.
But installing tomcat on servers is a complected process and requires expertise.
I am looking for documentation which can help me to learn how to install configure & administer tomcat on real servers.

The whole point of a virtual machine such as Parallels is that the virtual machine is, er, virtually indistinguisable from a real machine. If you install an OS such as Linux or Windows in a VM, installing Tomcat really isn't that hard. Just install a JDK in the VM and unzip Tomcat.

On download page http://tomcat.apache.org/download-55.cgi several binary distributions available.

Which distribution I must unzip?

I recommend Tomcat 5.5.28 if you can't go with Tomcat6. You want one of the "core" files. Any of them will work, although the Windows Installer (MSI) version is only going to run under Windows. ZIP and tgz are just alternative compression formats, and they're unzip-and-go.

When I run the windows installer the installation has few files in bin directory and
the zip & tgz when extracted contains lots of different files in bin directory.

Why this difference?

My previous question is unanswered... if any buddy can answer to my previous query...

On page Tomcat 5.5 Setup: see Windows section -
in first para second sentence - it is explicitly told the windows service installation contains only a few items of interest.

The Windows installer adds Windows-only stuff to allow controlling Tomcat as a Windows Service. There's no equivalent to this for the Unix-style systems, since the equivalent functionality varies with the OS and the shop standards.
