problems with Tomcat (not working)

Link to this post 19 Apr 10

I use Debian and want to use Tomcat for web applications (JSP).
So I installed Apache, Tomcat and OpenJava from the Debian repository.
But it doesn't work on my local machine -> apache is running but Tomcat doesn' work.

What I have to do to use Tomcat for my WebApplications?

I think you need to be more specific than "it doesn't work". Do you get error messages? What are the symptoms of "it doesn't work?

I tried out some instructions but I failed.

Apache works properly (web pages were delivered).

I can start Tomcat with OpenJava (from Debian repository); but the start failed (output: "failed" ) as I tried it with SUN Java JDK.

# /etc/init.d/tomcat start
Using CATALINA_BASE: /opt/apache-tomcat
Using CATALINA_HOME: /opt/apache-tomcat
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: /opt/apache-tomcat/temp
Using JRE_HOME: /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/jre
Using CLASSPATH: /opt/apache-tomcat/bin/bootstrap.jar

I cannot find the name "Tomcat" in any of my running processes. Is there a separate process or is there apache only?

I couldn't find some more helpful output. How can I check the services to find out what the problem is?
Thanks for any help.

I'm not an apache user, but wouldn't something like "services --status-all" or "chkconfig --list" give you a rundown on what services are installed and what their status is?

Please checkout that guide may tell you what is necessary to get it completely installed and running.

This and other links I found before. And I tried to do so but it failed.
Maybe Tomcat is running and my applications are not correct.

So I will learn more how to run applications with Tomcat.
