I am having trouble setting up Tomcat 8 on my Pi 3, running Raspbian. I've installed Java 8 and Tomcat 8 but it refuses to start up.
I started by ensuring Java 8 was installed.
pi@raspberrypi:~$ java -version java version "1.8.0_65" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_65-b17) Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 25.65-b01, mixed mode)
Then I installed Tomcat via:
apt-get install tomcat8
This has installed it in /etc/tomcat8:
pi@raspberrypi:/etc/tomcat8$ ls Catalina catalina.properties context.xml logging.properties policy.d server.xml tomcat-users.xml web.xml
I set JAVA_HOME in bashrc and verified with an
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ echo $JAVA_HOME /usr/lib/jvm/jdk-8-oracle-arm32-vfp-hflt/
Then I also made sure it was set in /etc/default/tomcat8:
However, when I try to start my Tomcat server, I get the following error:
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo systemctl start tomcat8 Job for tomcat8.service failed. See 'systemctl status tomcat8.service' and 'journalctl -xn' for details.
The contents of tomcat8.service is as follows:
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ systemctl status tomcat8.service ● tomcat8.service - LSB: Start Tomcat. Loaded: loaded (/etc/init.d/tomcat8) Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Sun 2017-08-20 16:03:21 UTC; 1min 28s ago Process: 1267 ExecStart=/etc/init.d/tomcat8 start (code=exited, status=2)
Could anyone tell me what I'm missing please?
