Unzip it to a directory?

What specifically do you need to know?

Hi David, I unzip the apache-tomcat-6.0.29.tar.gz on my applications folder but when I try to open this folder from a terminal windows I got this messages:

cd applications ----- OK!!!

cd apache-tomcat-6.0.29
-bash: cd: apache-tomcat-6.0.29: No such file or directory

If I unzip the apache-tomcat-6.0.29.tar.gz on my user folder and open a terminal window, go to the /apache-tomcat-6.0.29/bin folder and execute this command:

sudo ./startup.sh

It's work, why???

How can I automate this startup command???

When I go to localhost:8080 and try to open any option, tomcat always ask me for a user and password, but I don't have it, where is this user and password???

I thinks this are all my question, for now :D

Buy "Tomcat the definitive guide". It will tell you exactly step by step how to do it. It also has other useful information.
