Subject Re: problem configuring tomcat7 in ubuntu 10.04
Date Fri, 30 Sep 2011 19:04:36 GMT
Thanks Mark. I had previously installed tomcat6. I unistalled it using
command: sudo apt-get remove --purge tomcat6. But still when i browse:
http://localhost:8080/ it displays tomcat 6 welcome page. I installed tomcat
7 as you explained but tomcat6 welcome page displays. Why is it so ?

Regards,
Anisha
