Installing Tomcat on Debian (lenny)
I recently installed Debian 5.0.5 (lenny) on an extra PC that I had lying around:
I want to turn this PC into a Linux server for hosting a basic JSP web application with PostgreSQL as the back-end database.
I installed PostgreSQL and it runs fine however I'm having some issues installing Tomcat 6.
I followed a guide that I found online, and everything seemed fine when I was following the steps however I wasn't able to verify that the server was running by viewing the default tomcat page.
Is there much difference in using Tomcat 5 vs Tomcat 6?
I'll probably try Tomcat 5.5 tonight.

I'd also like to setup a simple email server, and I'd like to know roughly what's required to do this.
I know I sound like a noob, I guess I'm just too used to Windows :(
I just haven't touched Linux since University as the company I work for is all Windows and it's easy to get comfortable :p
Your link doesn't work and you haven't provided enough information. Look at the logs.
Is tomcat running? Is it listening on 8080? What message do you get when you browse to http://localhost:8080 ??
Tomcat5.5 is in stable/lenny, Tomcat6 is in squeeze/testing.
Thanks for your fast replies.
Once I got home, I found another site that I followed to success :)
Now Tomcat is running and I can access the default webapp.
P.S. sorry about the last link...not sure what happened there :P
Incase you're intereseted, this is the original link:
There was a lot wrong with this one:
Trying to do something similar..
I am putting up a page with GeoServer inside ApacheTomcat. I have gotten through to the point where I have "http://MYIPADDRESS:8080/" working.
Now I am trying to get to the place where I can edit my "tomcat-user.xml" file, and cant seem to navigate to it inside the "PuTTY" window I am using to access my VPS (linode.com)
Any tips would be apprceciated...
