The first thing you would have to check, is whether port 80 is still free on that server,

or if there is already another webserver (e.g. Apache httpd) using it.

The second thing to clarify is whether, apart from "myapp", there are other web 
applications (not called "myapp") which you are running or would want to run under Tomcat

on that server.
If not, then you might want to run your application as the *default* application, so that

users would get to it with the URL "", instead of 
To do this first, have a look at :
and look at #17 : How do I make my web application be the tomcat default application
