This is where I am so far with my download after I was stranded in the middle of the way. So I went to the website, downloaded the latest version of Tomcat, and I extracted it into my downloads. I have been trying to add
JAVA_HOME and this is not working. I have looked for tutorials, but nothing seems to work. I am not well versed with vim.
So where do I go from here?
It works !
If you're seeing this page via a web browser, it means you've setup Tomcat successfully. Congratulations!
This is the default Tomcat home page. It can be found on the local filesystem at: /var/lib/tomcat7/webapps/ROOT/index.html
Tomcat7 veterans might be pleased to learn that this system instance of Tomcat is installed with CATALINA_HOME in /usr/share/tomcat7 and CATALINA_BASE in /var/lib/tomcat7, following the rules from /usr/share/doc/tomcat7-common/RUNNING.txt.gz.
