Hi guys ,
I am relatively new to apache and tomcat . I am trying to port some applications from iplanet to apache .
I have Apache-AdvancedExtranetServer/1.3.23 running on a linux machine .
I need to install tomcat inorder to use servlets and JSPs .
jakarta-tomcat-3.3
I followed instructions on the net to install tomcat . --> http://wass.homelinux.net/howtos/Jakarta_How-To.shtml
I loaded my tomcat and try to start it using startup.sh / tomcat.sh ..
but i keep getting the following error :
EmbededTomcat: Init time 1467
2003-03-16 12:45:49 - Http10Interceptor: Starting on 1977
Guessed home=/var/jakarta
java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException: org.apache.tomcat.core.TomcatException: Root cause - Ad
dress already in use
at org.apache.tomcat.modules.server.PoolTcpConnector.engineStart(Unknown Source)
at org.apache.tomcat.core.ContextManager.start(Unknown Source)
I was using the default port 8080 initially , but changed it so sample port 1977 and still get the same error . I have already spent a considerable time on this problem . Can someone help me please ... I have made sure no tomcat processes are running by killing the existing threads ..
is there some compatability problem ???
Thanks
g

gangavg,
Welcome to JavaRanch!
We ain't got many rules 'round these parts, but we do got one. Please change your display name to comply with The JavaRanch Naming Policy.
Thanks Pardner! Hope to see you 'round the Ranch!

That would be ok, gangavg, but you will notice that the naming policy requires you to to separate it with a space. May I suggest that you make your display name "ganga vg".

We have a forum dedicated to Apache and Tomcat named Apache/Tomcat. I could move this post there if you wish.

Actually, "ganga gv" probably isn't going to go over too well either. For names in most parts of the world, we'd expect to see the initials on the front, but we feel a little more comfortable if there's at least some sort of "real" first name and family name. It doesn't have to be all long and formal (mine's shortened), just something you make you appear more like a person instead of an acronym, so to speak.
You might want to look at how others in the JavaRanch have handled this problem. You're not alone in having a long name by any means. One thing you can do is place the name (or even "handle" by which you are accustomed to be called in your signature. Then make something more formal for your username.
Anyway, Welcome to the JavaRanch. Your question would be more appropriate in the Tomcat forum, and since it's a common problem, you should search that forum for detailed answers. But the short answer is that some other program has opened the TCP/IP port Tomcat wants, and since ports can't be shared that way, Tomcat can't start.

Moving to Tomcat forum - don't forget to change your name.
Thanks
