I'm trying to create my own website using JSP, Tomcat...

I'm trying to install Tomcat in Ubuntu (in my Cloud Instance) but I can't access my website.

I trying to install Tomcat 9 and I'm using Ubuntu 17.10 x64

I use this tutorial: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-apache-tomcat-8-on-ubuntu-16-04

But on Step 8 when I will access my website http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:8080 nothing happens. I'm using Chrome to access website so it responds "This page is not working"

So I started to investigate using this code:

sudo systemctl status tomcat

This is the result of command:

Result of command

But for me this message is OK.

So I tried to create a server Node.JS to see if the problem is the firewall or port 8080, and it's work, the page loads correctly.


Have you taken a look at the logs? Hopefully you could find them with sudo locate catalina. You could also try deploying the sample application to the webapps direcory.

  • That's it, it's only add something in webapps. Thanks very much. – Cava Apr 8 '18 at 3:09
