i am using windows Vista 32 bit Business version , i installed Tomcat 6.0.35 successfully and now when i run the Tomcat server from <Tomcat_Home>\bin\Tomcat6.0.exe then it started and automatically shutdown. How to make my server in running mode ..?
If you installed Tomcat from the zip file - as an application, not a service - it must be started by running the startup.bat file - use a command prompt window from the tomcat bin directory. The reason you cant start by directly executing the exe is that the bat files set up important environment variables.
Also, once you start up the server using startup.bat, and if the issue still occurs, then you might want to check if port 8080 which is used by default for tomcat, is not in use.
If it is then you can either free the port or configure your tomcat server to point to a different port.
