Hi All,

I have installed Tomcat at least a half dozen times on various RHEL5 boxes.

In the past I have literally just copied the tar.gz into /usr/share (where we keep all our instances, not /var/lib like i know many others do), unpacked it and then started it up (/bin/startup.sh).

It usually runs without a hitch, as-is and when i go to http://(MY.IP.ADDRESS):8080, I get the manager, and then can start dragging my applications into /webapps and be done with it.

Right now I have a very strange case on my hands. I did the above on a rhel5 server, and start it.

In terminal, it shows normal startup:


and catalina.out shows



As you can see, no significant error (at least in my estimation) occurs. But when I go to 8080, it just sits loading until it times out.

Also, if i grep for it in the ps list I get



So it IS running as far as all indications would say.

Can someone give me a some tips or hints on where to look next?

Also, when I do a
$ netstat -vatn

I get
tcp 0 0 :::8080 :::* LISTEN

Does this mean the port is open or...?

so I did an nmap on localhost:


doesnt look like a port conflict to me. I even changed the port from 8080 to 8090, then to 8008, and no difference.

Actually, the server just needed a reboot.

I'm not sure why, I assume maybe it was that I had uninstalled an older tomcat install then installed the new one?

But that's all it took for me.
