Setting Tomcat as the Application Container

You use Server Admin to work with Tomcat. You can set Tomcat to start when the server starts. This ensures that the Tomcat module starts after a power failure or after the server shuts down.

You can use Server Admin or Terminal to enable Tomcat.

  1. Open Server Admin and connect to the server.

  2. Click the triangle at the left of the server.

    The list of services appears.

  3. From the expanded Servers list, select Web.

  4. Click Settings, then click General.

  5. Select the Enable Tomcat checkbox.

  6. Click Save.

To start Tomcat:

$ sudo /Library/Tomcat/6.0/bin/

To verify that Tomcat is running, use a browser to access port 9006 on your website server by entering the URL for your site followed by :9006. If Tomcat is running, this URL shows the Tomcat home page.
