Hi there
I did:

Urpmi Tomcat5
urpmi tomcat5-webapps
urpmi tomcat5-admin-clearwebapps

I get apache webpage http://localhost but nothing on http://localhost:8080

netstat -anp |grep 8080

tcp 0 0 :::8080 :::* LISTEN 5710/java

Firewall is off.

Any ideas ?

Re: tomcat

Hmm .., seems to be that you have another 8080 application running there.

tcp 0 0 :::8080 :::* LISTEN 5710/java

Did you check the apache configuration for for the port binding ?

If you run only netstat -anp |grep 80 , what's the output?

I think that apache is running at 80 now, I don't know.. just a thought.

Try that, maybe it works by changing the configuration at that file.

Re: tomcat

Open ports you see with:
netstat -lptu

lsof -i | grep 8080

Or try tomcat first on another port 8081 for example.

Re: tomcat

The lsof option is really good.

If you don't have it .., take it from here

Re: tomcat

he's obviously running linux, no need to get the hpux lsof. lsof is probaly already installed by default on linux, or else it's just one command to install it.

Re: tomcat

# /sbin/service tomcat5 status

Check the file: /var/log/tomcat5/catalina.out

Make sure that you don't have any errors.

You can stop/restart tomcat5 like this:

# /sbin/service tomcat5 stop
{wait for process rundown}
# /sbin/service tomcat5 start


Check the following file:


make sure that the following section is uncommented like this:

maxThreads="150" minSpareThreads="25" maxSpareThreads="75"
enableLookups="false" redirectPort="8443" acceptCount="100"
connectionTimeout="20000" disableUploadTimeout="true" />

Then access the default Tomcat5 site:

Those are some things to check.
