Subject Re: installing Tomcat without being root
Date Mon, 02 Jun 2003 07:44:07 GMT
Hello,
thanks to your advice i had been able to install tomcat and run all my
servlets, but I have still 2 problems:

1) Having   installed TomCat standalone as a non-root user, TomCat is
reachable only at port 8080, while the DNS is set for the port 80,
ie www.myhost.com:8080 works, but www.myhost.com dont. What should i do is
this case?

2) the Host inside (the Engine tag) has still the name "localhost", and not
the name it should have www.myhost.com. It works all fine, either browsing
the my site remotely and locally. I read through the documentation, and i
did not find what is the difference between having it set to "localhost" or
to the right host name ("www.myhost.com"). Any hint?

Many thanks,
Alex
