Tomcat6 stops listening when i change from port 8080


Hey everybody.

So i wanted to start out as an previous experinced java developer, to try out tomcat6, on my Test Server Machine, so i totally reinstalled my Debian6 on it, and only installed

sshd
tomcat6
tomcat6-admin
tomcat6-common
tomcat6-docs
tomcat6-user

now tomcat6 works perfectly on port 8080, but i wanted to run it as main httpd service, when i later learn to contrcut some nice looking stuff. i have been working alot on how it all works, as it is very diffrent from my latest uses (PHP).

now the most important thing to know, is ofcasue to setup and configure the server (ofcasue) :P

but i kinda gave up after 5 hours of trying myself.

how in (some religious god)'s name do you change the listening port from 8080 to 80?

i tryed to change /etc/tomcat6/server.xml

from
Code:
<Connector port="8080" protocol="HTTP/1.1"
               connectionTimeout="20000"
               URIEncoding="UTF-8"
               redirectPort="8443" />
to

Code:
<Connector port="80" protocol="HTTP/1.1"
               connectionTimeout="20000"
               URIEncoding="UTF-8"
               redirectPort="8443" />
it seems to totally stop listening when i do that, my netstat dont evven list it as a listener?
hmm do i need to do something else?

what user is this running as? can you run it on other ports above 1024? you need root privledges to listen on ports under 1024. It's pretty common to run apache on 80 and then use mod_proxy of mod_jk to connect the the tomcat server.

Thats proberly the problem right there. i install apache2 too then :P

how can it bee that Apache2 uses the www:www user:group, and still is allowed the 80-port? hmmm well.. it works trough the mod_proxy from apache2.. thanks for the fast answer

Apache opens the ports as root then changes user after this point.

i have same problem. my server is running Centos 5.7. i have installed tomcat6, tomcat6-webapps, tomcat6-admin-webapps.

first, i change http port from 80 to 8081 at file: /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf --> it runs with that port ok
second, change port in /etc/tomcat6/server.xml from 8080 to 80.


<Connector port="8080" protocol="HTTP/1.1"
connectionTimeout="20000"
URIEncoding="UTF-8"
redirectPort="8443" />
to
<Connector port="80" protocol="HTTP/1.1"
connectionTimeout="20000"
URIEncoding="UTF-8"
redirectPort="8443" />

after restarting tomcat6, it still runs on 8080 port instead of 80.

please help me. Thank you.

i have not been able to make it run 80.. but you can use the Proxy from Apache HTTPD, to route your port 80 to 8080.
