      Are you sure your apache tomcat started up correctly? also have you opened port 8080 on firewall? If yes, do check the apache logs for any errors.

    Thanks for your helpful tutorials. Just wanted to ask if it is necessary to configure a java_home environment after installing the java packages. I am confused because I came across this tutorial that configured a java environment and edited the file before installing Tomcat. Why is this necessary? I’ll paste the website’s URL below. Thanks.
