Hello everyone,
i have installed tomcat6 in my Ubuntu system using this command [sudo apt-get install apache2] for lamp server, and i successfully started this.
now i have install eclipse and download tomcat6, and reference the downloaded tomcat6 into my eclipse, but here i am not able to start my tomcat6, it's giving me error that port is already in use, but i have also changed port from 8080 to 8081 but it still giving me error, error is:

"Port 8005 required by Tomcat v6.0 Server at localhost is already in use. The server may already be running in another process, or a system process may be using the port. To start this server you will need to stop the other process or change the port number(s)."

and here is my server.xml (after changing port from 8080 to 8081)


can anyone help me in this please..
