Subject RE: TOMCAT 4.0 on port 80
Date Fri, 08 Feb 2002 12:09:32 GMT
Pascal - 

We have shut down apache using "rcapache stop" and have modified the
rc.config file so that it does not start on bootup.

Thanks anyway - what we are trying is to change the server.xml file back to
80 and to restart tomcat under root.

Do you think that was our problem - not starting under root.

If you can't get tomcat to bind to port 80 on a Linux box - or on any 
box for
that matter - you should check that there is no other web server running on
the machine.

For example, Red Hat installs an apache web server by default.  I don't know
about SuSe, but this could be your problem.  In order to ensure that 
there is
no httpd server running on your Linux box, do the following:

/etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd stop
rm -f /etc/rc.d/rc?.d/S??httpd

And then try to launch tomcat again.

I hope this helps,
