Tomcat6 stops listening on port 80 when i change from port 8080 to port 80

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"
redirectPort="8443" />
<Connector port="80" protocol="HTTP/1.1"
redirectPort="8443" />

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

please help me. Thank you.

Sounds like you may want to kill tomcat's process. It may not have shutdown properly.

The command below may catch the process for you:
ps -ef | grep java
Also remember that regular user accounts can not run on a port as low as 80 so you may need to sudo your or service, something that you would not have had to do on 8080.
