Installing Tomcat 5.5 in Suse Linux

Hi..

I'm trying to install Tomcat5.5 on Suse Linux 10.1 OS. But it doesn't work.

I've untar'ed the core version of tomcat 5.5( apache-tomcat-5.5.33.tar.gz ). I've run startup.sh script in ~/tomcat/bin/ using ROOT login.

It gives me this output:

/opt/Narasimha/SCWCD/tomcat/bin> ./startup.sh
Using CATALINA_BASE: /opt/Narasimha/SCWCD/tomcat
Using CATALINA_HOME: /opt/Narasimha/SCWCD/tomcat
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: /opt/Narasimha/SCWCD/tomcat/temp
Using JRE_HOME: /usr/lib/jvm/java/jre
Using CLASSPATH: /opt/Narasimha/SCWCD/tomcat/bin/bootstrap.jar

But when I check the browser by http://localhost:8080, I don't get the Tomcat welcome page. Where did I go wrong ?

I've tried installing it in windows. There is a "tomcat5w.exe" file with which I have started the service. So, Is there anything else that I need to do to enable it in Linux ?

The question is, what did you get, if not the welcome page?

You can check to see if port 8080 came online using the netstat command. Also (and more importantly), check the logs/catalina.out file.

Unable to connect
Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at localhost:8080
