Subject Configuring second tomcat instance on same box
Date Thu, 17 Sep 2009 14:57:31 GMT

I am trying to create second Tomcat instance on same machine.
Installed Tomcat into separate folder say c:\tomcat2 and changed
the conf/server.xml port numbers to different values.
Basically I bumped the Server port from 8005 to 8006,
connector port to 8081 from 8080 and redirectPort to 8444 (from 8443).
Changes are like below.

Still, when I start this second instance, I get the error saying:
"Several ports (8005,8009) required by Tomcat at localhost are already
in use."

True, they are in use as my original Tomcat instance is running on them.
But I changed those port numbers for this instance in server.xml file.
Do I have to change else where? Thanks much for insights and pointers.


==Snippets from TOMCAT2_HOME\conf\server.xml============

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
<Server port="8006" shutdown="SHUTDOWN"> <!-- was 8005 originally -->
    <!-- was originally at 8080, 8443 -->
    <Connector port="8081" protocol="HTTP/1.1" 
               redirectPort="8444" />

    <!-- Define an AJP 1.3 Connector on port 8010(was 8009!) -->
    <Connector port="8010" protocol="AJP/1.3" redirectPort="8444" /> 
    <!-- In above ports were 8009 and 8443 respectively, originally! -->
