I install the apache-tomcat-5.5.23, but I can't view page http://localhost:8080. Is there any error in following message?
root@localhost apache-tomcat-5.5.23> /usr/src/apache-tomcat-5.5.23/bin/startup.sh
Using CATALINA_BASE: /usr/src/apache-tomcat-5.5.23
Using CATALINA_HOME: /usr/src/apache-tomcat-5.5.23
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: /usr/src/apache-tomcat-5.5.23/temp
Using JRE_HOME: /usr/java/jdk1.5.0_07
Or do I neet to paste out other file for discussion?
EDIT: by the way, it seems that I have different jave modules installed, do I need to uninstall the previous version?

That's strange, since startup.sh produces no errors but tomcat is not running. According to catalina.out the startup process is stopping somewhere in the middle but with no errors.
One thing I've noticed is the path to catalina.out (and admin.xml, balancer.xml) that is /var/www/tomcat. If this is correct, then your CATALINA_* variables should point to /var/www/tomcat
Where is tomcat installed? And how did you installed it?
Because the only thing you need to define in order to run tomcat is JAVA_HOME. The various CATALINA_* variables are taken from the path to the startup script.
And I installed apache-tomcat-5.5.23 in /usr/java via instruction of
The instructions you mentioned are for building jsvc which is used to run tomcat as daemon and /usr/java is the path to the jdk needed. I think that you've extracted the tomcat archive under /usr/src, so the CATALINA_* are /usr/src/apache-tomcat-5.5.23. If that's the case, remove (or comment out) the TOMCAT_HOME from your /etc/profile, or edit it to be the same as CATALINA_HOME and then logout/login again to re-read your profile. Or run
Then try to start tomcat using the /usr/src/apache-tomcat-5.5.23/bin/startup.sh script.
