Trying to Install the tomcat apache
Nowdays i'm learning web application development in java programming.
i've figured out that i need to install tomcat and apache.
i dont understand about it so much... (but i've seen it working under windows)
i've tried to follow after a lot of tutorials how to set the system up for web developing, but none of them worked.
i've followed after the next tutorial:
now... i've downloaded everything... and i have installed everything exactly the way that the tutorials explains.
in the last part of the tutorial theres a way to know if my installations had been successfully configured. it says: write localhost:8080/ at the url of the browser. when im typing in the firefox's url box: http://localhost:8080/ or http://localhost:8181/ it doesn't do a thing. it says :
"Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at localhost:8080"
am i doing something wrong?
i've started the server by writing in the console:
"$CATALINA_HOME/bin/startup.sh" and it doesn't show me the localhost:8080 default page....
and i have Suse 10.1...
please help me, and im sorry for my horrible english. its not my native language.
