Yesterday I installed Tomcat5.5.20 (CORE Windows Service Installer), but I was unable to view the Tomcat home page when I typed the following url: http://localhost:8080

So, I unistalled it and tried to install it once again. At the end of Installation I got the following error message: "Check your settings and permissions". What could be the problem for this?

During the installation process it asked for Administrator login name and password, Do I need to enter the administrator password?

Can anyone help me in this regard??

Thanks in advance.

We assume you have no firewall that might be getting in the way, and that you are hitting tomcat in a local browser, yes? (Forgive me for the stupid question but I just have to ask.) And, did you go with the default 8080 port configuration? Or did you change it to 80 (like I have done myself in the past)?

Have you check to see if the service has started in the Windows Service Manager? And if the service has started, have you looked inside the log files in tomcat-home/log? If there is a service error you will see it in one of these files.

"Check your settings and permissions". What could be the problem for this?



Does your Windows user account (or the one you used to install Tomcat) have administrator rights?
The account that installs Tomcat must be able to register and run services.

During the installation process it asked for Administrator login name and password



This is the account for the Tomcat admin user. You are prompted for this account when opening the Tomcat Manager and Administration web applications.
This has nothing to do with your previous error.
