    I need to install Apache 2.3.2 on Haswell processor which only support RHEL 6.xx. Whereas Apache being 32bit, I am not able to install it. Is there is any way out considering I cannot change any version of OS or Apache.

    I followed your instructions to the teeth. Zero problems. Worked like a charm. I have to say, this is the best instruction on installing apache-tomcat on the entire internet. I do not say this lightly. First time, I comment on any website when looking for information

    I cannot open tomcat when i navigate to my server IP address.
    Maybe there is some configuration error or i just didn’t follow good on the commands here.

    I checked this tutorial: and it is very similar to this, but somehow everything worked OK after completing the one article from Rosehosting.

    Hello there,

    I’ve installed with no error. But its not working. When i visit my ip it can’t open.

    root@localhost:/opt/apache-tomcat-8.0.9/bin# ./
    Using CATALINA_BASE: /opt/apache-tomcat-8.0.9
    Using CATALINA_HOME: /opt/apache-tomcat-8.0.9
    Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: /opt/apache-tomcat-8.0.9/temp
    Using JRE_HOME: /usr
    Using CLASSPATH: /opt/apache-tomcat-8.0.9/bin/bootstrap.jar:/opt/apache-tomcat-8.0.9/bin/tomcat-juli.jar
    Tomcat started.

    Please look above output, there was no error.

    can you please tell whats going there?

    • Hanny Helal says:

      Hello Aminul.

      Yes, in the output there is no error as i can see, ./ is just telling you the CATALINA_BASE, CATALINA_HOME…etc paths which Tomcat will use to run other files, those variables are necessary to run Tomcat and ./ is setting them.
