Can anyone tell me why when I use startup.bat to start the tomcat, there are following error messges? Thanks a lot --------------- Catalina.start: LifecycleException: null.open: java.net.BindException: Address in use: JVM_Bind LifecycleException: null.open: java.net.BindException: Address in use: JVM_Bin d at org.apache.catalina.connector.http.HttpConnector.initialize(HttpConne ctor.java:1116) at org.apache.catalina.core.StandardService.initialize(StandardService.j ava:454) at org.apache.catalina.core.StandardServer.initialize(StandardServer.jav a:552) at org.apache.catalina.startup.Catalina.start(Catalina.java:775) at org.apache.catalina.startup.Catalina.execute(Catalina.java:681) at org.apache.catalina.startup.Catalina.process(Catalina.java:179) at java.lang.reflect.Method.invoke(Native Method) at org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap.main(Bootstrap.java:218) ----- Root Cause ----- java.net.BindException: Address in use: JVM_Bind at java.net.PlainSocketImpl.socketBind(Native Method) at java.net.PlainSocketImpl.bind(PlainSocketImpl.java:405)
The answer is in the stack trace.This means that something else (probably Tomcat) is already running on a port that Tomcat is trying to obtain.
If you installed Tomcat 4.x on a Windows system, you had the option at install time to install Tomcat as a service. If you did this, then Tomcat will automatically start with your PC. Attempting to start it again will result in this error.
To remove the service, you need to use the Control Panel and set that service to "manual" as opposed to "automatic"
I had the same problem (using eclipse), so what is the name of the services I should change in control panel. Thanks kevin

I reinstalled tomcat with a full installation, now I can see the "Apache Tomact" in service. But the prolem still there. I start Tomcat through Eclipse, it works fine whenever I was connecting with the internet. I think my problem is with my windows2000, it doesn't clear those instances of Tomact in those ports. Is there anyway to fix this? Your help is much appreciated. Kevin Cao
The solution is very simple Go to the server.xml file in your tomcat conf directory Modify the below line <Connector className="org.apache.coyote.tomcat4.CoyoteConnector" port="8080" minProcessors="5" maxProcessors="75" enableLookups="true" redirectPort="8443" acceptCount="100" debug="0" connectionTimeout="20000" useURIValidationHack="false" disableUploadTimeout="true" /> and change the port 8080 to lets say 8090 use the url http://localhost:8090 to access the web application. This is the simplest solution
