Tomcat Plugin unavailable - Help me please

Postby cityguru » 04. January 2005 16:13

Its been about a week or so now and i desperately need the Tomcat plugin for XAMPP linux edition, the url below to download the file is not working and i heard it will work with the latest version of XAMPP for Linux, so anyone know where this file is being hosted which works or whether there is a new addon in the works and if so what is the ETA on that
http://addons.xampp.org/cgi-bin/search.pl?pid=9
Thanks in advance

setting up tomcat

Postby jammer » 10. January 2005 05:30

hello,

i've just set up tomcat 5.5.4 to work with xampp 1.4.11 in linux.
here's a brief overview of what i did:

1. installed xampp + xampp-devel
2. downloaded the latest jdk and installed to /opt/java. set the environment variable JAVA_HOME=/opt/java/jdk....
3. downloaded tomcat binary and installed to /opt/java/jakarta-tomcat-5.5.4
and set up a symbolic link to point it to /opt/java/tomcat
(at this point you can test if tomcat is working by starting up tomcat and pointing your browser to http://localhost:8080)
4. downloaded jakarta-tomcat-connector-1.2.8 and compiled mod_jk.so
5. configured httpd.conf to load mod_jk.so and include mod_jk.conf
(you can follow this excellent howto i found on the net: http://johnturner.com/howto/apache-tomcat-howto.html)

hope this helps

:)

JAVA_HOME

Postby cpspros » 11. January 2005 22:14

To set the JAVA_HOME var:

Code: Select all
cd /tomcat/home/dir
export JAVA_HOME = /java/home/dir


To set the CATALINA_HOME var:
Code: Select all
cd /tomcat/home/dir
export CATALINA_HOME = /tomcat/home/dir


To startup the server, type:
Code: Select all
cd /tomcat/home/dir/bin
./catalina.sh start


I hope this works. I have done it and my JSP server is up and running. One more thing, you may have to do this again after each time you restart your computer. To avoid this, you can put it in your startup script.

maybe not working

Postby cpspros » 16. January 2005 17:59

HI

I dont think this has anything to do with XAMPP, but i can't log onto the tomcat admin program. I have scoured the internet for a tutorial for fixing it, but i have yet to find a working one. The system does not recognize my username and password

Can anyone help?
