Subject Re: can't start tomcat on port 80
Date Wed, 06 Feb 2013 13:53:02 GMT
Ok guys, i did what you all said:
Removed that crappy 3rd party tomcat and downloaded tomcat tarball and port 
changing works fine. Now i need to run tomcat as service and since it's a 
Fedora it uses systemd instead init. So i created file called tomcat.service 
and placed it in /etc/systemd/system/ directory.






Then i enable service using command "systemctl enable tomcat.service"
But nothing happens when i start tomcat with "service tomcat start"
Am i missing some more information in that tomcat.service file?

Good to kno.w

The third-party repackaged versions of Tomcat are not just copies of the 
real ones from - they have been modified to change 
location and content of configuration files, log files, startup scripts, 
etc.  Consequently, when something doesn't work, it's often necessary to 
contact the repackager, since experience shows they broke it.

It certainly would for those of us providing this voluntary support on the 
mailing list; we would then know exactly what we're dealing with.
