I am trying to run tomcat 5.5. I have used the zipped installation. I set up the path to the JDK and copied the JAR files from the common/lib o JDK.


I got the following in the catalina.log

The server does not seem to be starting for some reason.

Any Ideas !

1. Exactly how are you trying to start Tomcat? From a Command Prompt Window with start.bat?

2. Why are you sure Tomcat is not running? That log shows Tomcat starting.

I am trying to start it using the command prompt using startup.bat. I checked http://localhost:8080/ to see if it is running or not. The log above shows the initialization process only. When tomcat actually starts and listens to the 8080 port there are usually more entries in the log file.

1) Have you modified the server configuration in any way?
2) Do you see any exception in the log file when server is starting up?

I had the exact same problem today; funny thing is both tomcat 6 and 7 work fine on my machine.

I have no idea why, but 5.5 comes with APR native libraries - I removed the .dll tcnative-1 from the bin directory, and it stopped using APR and works fine.

HTH.
