Subject Getting Tomcat to run
Date Mon, 18 Dec 2000 21:10:44 GMT
I downloaded Apache and got it to run.  I downloaded Tomcat 3.2.1 build and tried to compile
the java files. Got tons of errors. Can anyone point me at a definitive step by step Howto?
I did the following (from Tomcat - A Minimalistic User's guide):
  a.. Download the zip/tar.gz/whatever file from

  b.. Unzip the file into some directory (say foo). This should create a new subdirectory
named "tomcat". 
  c.. Change directory to "tomcat" and set a new environment variable (TOMCAT_HOME) to point
to the root directory of your Tomcat hierarchy. 
    1.. On Win32 you should type: 
    "set TOMCAT_HOME=foo\tomcat" 
    2.. On UNIX you should type: 
    for bash/sh "TOMCAT_HOME=foo/tomcat ; export TOMCAT_HOME"
    for tcsh "setenv TOMCAT_HOME foo/tomcat" 
  d.. Set the environment variable JAVA_HOME to point to the root directory of your JDK hierarchy,
then add the Java interpreter to your PATH environment variable. 
That's it! You can now execute Tomcat and it will run as a stand-alone (type 1) servlet container...........BUT
that's not IT.
