Subject Installing tomcat 6
Date Tue, 04 Feb 2014 20:04:18 GMT
Hi
I am a very beginner trying to get a VPS working with Centos 6.5 and Tomcat
6.0.39.  I already reinstalled the server 3 times and am almost desperate,
so am even willing to pay someone who helps me.

Tomcat 6 is required by openemm.org for a mailing lists and newsletters.
And I am ready with a Creative Commons newsletter.

Openemm.org provides an installation tutorial:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/openemm/files/OpenEMM%20documentation/Documentation%20%28latest%20versions%29/OpenEMM-2013_InstallAdminGuide_1.1.pdf/download

So I am following this tutorial that teaches how to install latest Java
JDK7 first and Tomcat after as follows:

Download the latest binary distribution of Tomcat release 6 from
http://tomcat.apache.org. The core package is sufficient. The
examples here use Tomcat 6.0.32  you should adapt them to the latest
version of Tomcat 6 as needed:

mkdir -p /opt/openemm
cp apache-tomcat-6.0.32.tar.gz /opt/openemm
cd /opt/openemm
tar -xvzf apache-tomcat-6.0.32.tar.gz
ln -s apache-tomcat-6.0.32 tomcat
If you want to make sure that Tomcat works, enter the following commands:

export JAVA_HOME="/opt/openemm/java"
cd tomcat
bin/startup.sh

this command gives for me:
[root@ns3098622 tomcat]# bin/startup.sh
Using CATALINA_BASE:   /opt/openemm/tomcat
Using CATALINA_HOME:   /opt/openemm/tomcat
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: /opt/openemm/tomcat/temp
Using JRE_HOME:        "/opt/openemm/java"
Using CLASSPATH:       /opt/openemm/tomcat/bin/bootstrap.jar
[root@ns3098622 tomcat]#

Then I am supposed to test it with http://localhost:8080 which in my case
should be the address of my VPS I suppose: 94.23.44.200:8080 which is not
reachable.

Then the tutorial suggests to shutdown Tomcat with
bin/shutdown.sh:

[root@ns3098622 tomcat]# bin/shutdown.sh
Using CATALINA_BASE:   /opt/openemm/tomcat
Using CATALINA_HOME:   /opt/openemm/tomcat
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: /opt/openemm/tomcat/temp
Using JRE_HOME:        "/opt/openemm/java"
Using CLASSPATH:       /opt/openemm/tomcat/bin/bootstrap.jar
/opt/openemm/tomcat/bin/catalina.sh: line 421:
"/opt/openemm/java"/bin/java: No such file or directory

So here I am getting an error, but am confused with this error.

So please help me.
If it is of any relevance the step before Tomcat was to install Java, that
worked as expected from the tutorial:

mkdir -p /opt/openemm
cp jdk-7u25-linux-i586.tar.gz /opt/openemm
cd /opt/openemm
tar -xvzf jdk-7u25-linux-i586.tar.gz
ln -s jdk1.7.0_25 java

Then, to test the JDK:
/opt/openemm/java/bin/java -version
I get:
java version "1.7.0_25"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_25-b15)
Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM (build 23.25-b01, mixed mode)
So Java works as expected.

best
Franz
