Subject Re: installing tomcat 4.1.27 on linux
Date Thu, 12 Aug 2004 22:31:59 GMT
Sounds good to me!  Usually when we move Tomcat to a new Windows
machine, we just use that same executable zip
(jakarta-tomcat-4.1.27.exe) to install Tomcat on the new machine, and
then copy over our directories from the original machine to replace the
Tomcat directory that got created.  I know this might be a really dumb
question, but will that .exe file run and install everything on the
Linux box, or will I have to use and extract
everything?  It's all slowly and hazily making sense...I hope...on Red
Hat I won't have to "install" it quite as "much" as Windows which needs
to put things into the registries, etc, right?  So I just extract it and
put some kind of symbolic link to the Tomcat executable in usr/local/bin
or something like that, huh?  But will that be enough to mimic the
functionality we usually have, since typically on Windows we run it as a
service?  Sorry for my rambling...

Tomcat is written in Java and is OS independent, you don't need a linux 
specific install.
We have the same Tomcat install running on Solaris, Linux, and Windoze.
