That message usually means that there is already a server running that listens to port 8080; in that case, you can't start as second one on that port.

Getting Tomcat to listen on port 80 (or any port below 1024) is rather difficult; I would advise to stay away from that.

It seems your tomcat server is already running. You can check it. Try to stop the server then start again.

hope it works.
