Hi.. I downloaded Apache.. I tried running my jsp on my server but it didnt work. so i downloaded tomcat cuz apparently it is associated with jsp.. and so.. how do i get the jsp on tomcat to work?
here's the site i'm testing it on..
click on the link, and it just displays the code, and not the output..
i'm new to this stuff.. so please guide me. thank you!

If you only installed Apache, you will also need to install Tomcat and then configure Apache to forward .jsp requests to Tomcat. Or, if you have a low volume site, you could just use Tomcat.
Hope this helps.
