Probably you didn't change the other 4 port numbers in server.xml. Tomcat uses more than just port 8080.

But without actual error messages, that's just a guess based on what people usually miss out on.

Hi ,

yes,i have modified all required port number in server.xml of second TOMCAT instances.
SHUTDOWN=5555
HTTP/1.1=5554
AJP/1.3=5553
CATALINA_BASE=D:\tomcat2 and copied conf,logs,webapps,work folder to this location.

for primary instance
CATALINA_HOME=C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 6.0

SHUTDOWN=1500
HTTP/1.1=1499
AJP/1.3=1498

after that when i start first instance ,it started as before but the for second instance when i access following url.
http://localhost:5554 the browser shows

can't establish a connection to the server at localhost:8888.

Thank you

That would seem to indicate that Tomcat is working, but the page request redirected to port 8888.

Are you using Apache web server with a Tomcat connector?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
