Installing Tomcat 6 with Java 6


I am installing tomcat in /var/apps as this is where my disks pace is.

Before I can run Tomcat I Downloaded/Uploaded jdk-6u23-linux-x64.bin and jre-6u23-linux-x64.bin to my Linux server into /var/apps/java6_install
cd /var/apps/java6_install
chmod 755 /jdk-6u23-linux-x64.bin
./jdk-6u23-linux-x64.bin

chmod 755 /jre-6u23-linux-x64.bin
./jre-6u23-linux-x64.bin

No I ensured that I had Apache ANT installed.

http://apache.mirror.rbftpnetworks.com/ant/binaries/apache-ant-1.8.1-bin.tar.gz

I installed ANT to

/var/apps/ant

I then created a soft link to ant

ln -s /var/apps/apache-ant-1.8.1/bin/ant /usr/bin

Set up JAVA_HOME $env in catalina.sh

cd /var/apps/apache-tomcat-6.0.29/bin

vi catalina.sh


After the first line, add following
JAVA_HOME=/var/apps/jdk1.6.0_23

For example

#!/bin/sh
JAVA_HOME=/var/apps/jdk1.6.0_23
JRE_HOME=var/apps/jre1.6.0_23


Test the Tomcat installation

Tomcat
cd /var/apps/apache-tomcat-6.0.29/bin
./startup.sh

Since I already have JBOSS running on 8080 I need to change the Tomcat port.

vi //var/apps/apache-tomcat-6.0.29/conf/server.xml to chnage the port form 8080 to 8081 and SSL from 8443 to 8444

<Connector port="8081" protocol="HTTP/1.1"
connectionTimeout="20000"
redirectPort="8444" />

<Connector port="8010" protocol="AJP/1.3" redirectPort="8444" />

tail /var/apps/apache-tomcat-6.0.29/logs/catalina.out
