I did install Tomcat 7.0.6, but cannot open its home page:
I have a 64bit Win7 and used the 32/64bit Tomcat installer.
I have a 64bit Java SDK 1.6.0_22 path in the PATH variable.
The Apache Tomcat service is running and I can't find a problem in the logs.
If I am writing http://localhost into the address bar of my browsers, I always get error messages (network problem, connection faild).
What am I doing wrong? Can somebody help me please?
Thank you in advance!
The correct URL to talk to Tomcat is "http://localhost:8080" unless you've changed Tomcat's default port settings.
You web browser will attempt to contact "http://localhost:80" if you don't explicitly provide a port number in your URL.

Ok, thank you a lot!
I did copy my war file to the webapps folder - it got extracted automatically.
But if I add the name of my war file after the address (like http://localhost:8080/[my_app]), I do only get a HTTP Status 404 error:
The requested resource is not available.
Can it be, that it is not good, to install Tomcat under the programs folder, since this folder is protected by the System (Win7)?
