My OS is winVista ultimate, I downloaded tomcat 6.0.18 and installed fine. when i run "startup" command, the dos window outputs a bunches of error regarding access denied when writing to log files. I don't want to paste the error code here because it is too long; what should i do now to find the problem?
I tried to start the server in netBean, it took a long time. and finally says it fails on startup. my netbean runs fine with pre-packaged glassfish.
how do i find out the ports to which the tomcat server listens to?
Note: netBean informed me that tomcat failed on startup. when i tried to started again, netbean say port 8080 is already in use. there is no other application server running. when i open IE and type http://localhost:8080/ it hangs there for a long time (more than five minutes).
i also installed the glassfish that came with netBean and it worked fine when i start it under netBean.
I set TOMCAT_HOME = tomcat installation directory, and my JAVA_HOME is set to my J2SE sdk1.6.
When I typed "startup" under tomcat/bin another windows pop up with a lot of error msgs, eventhough it says "INFO: Server startup in 112ms", it still isn't working.
I open IE 7, Firefox and typed "http://localhost:8080". The browser just keep loading and loading and never finishes.
First time i tried using Windows service install, the second time unzip directory to c drive undre the default install directory. Both of them display same error. The reason i start tomcat under netBean is so that I can copy the error msg. but they are basically saying the same thing.
I installed websphere and ibm java 1.5 sdk. i thought it might conflict with tomcat so i removed the java 1.5 sdk implemented by ibm. when i read the output from tomcat, it also stated that it runs on sun's jre. It doesn't mention anything about sdk (or i am not awared of).
I am out of ideas now. usually we either install from .msi/.exe or unzip the binary, and that's all right? what else did i miss?

I know this post has been here a while, but hope my answer is at least somewhat helpful to anyone else running into this issue
I do not have a solution for the netBeans issue. I will be doing my development using Eclipse. But I may do a test with netBeans to see if I can come up with anything.
But for executing startup in command prompt (Windows 7 Professional here), I appear to have gotten rid of the error message and stack trace. I did this by doing "Run As..." and chosing my administrator account in Windows. So it seems when I first ran the command in DOS, I was running as a regular user, and had to tell Windows to run with higher privileges.
I'll keep this thread posted if I happen to run into anything that might help on netBeans. (unless someone else has found the solution already? )
