Default Tomcat Installation Problem

I had both Tomcat 4.1 and Microsoft Personal Web Server installed on my laptop ( an IBM Thinkpad - Windows NT operating system). It had been several months since I used Tomcat.

When I started the Tomcat server and typed in localhost:8080 in the Internet Explorer address window, it brought me to Personal Web Server rather than bringing up the Tomcat page.

I then decided to uninstall both Personal Web Server and the Java Web Services Developers Pack. But after reinstalling the latter, I am getting a page not found condition. The details are below.

If anyone can help, I'd really appreciate it.

Type in Address Window:

In Internet Explorer
Above Address Window:

Page cannot be displayed
The page you are looking for is currently unavailable

In Netscape, typing in http://localhost:8080 brings me to:
Java Web Services Developer Pack 1.1

However, if I try to bring up first example of Beginning JSP Web Development (Wrox Press), I get:

HTTP Status 404
The requested resource is not available

Location of Installations


The files listed under the environment variables CLASSPATH and PATH are a partial listing:
c:\Program Files\JMF2.1.1\lib\jmf.jar;
c:\Program Files\JMF2.1.1\lib\sound.jar;

hi , if any other server is runnin , then tomcat simply quits i guess.
So uninstall rest , and keep tomcat only. If you are using older versions of tomcat then u need to set calalina_home,In tomcat 5.0.16 they will give u exe, so u dont need to worry about classpaths just click exe for installation.

 In your case set java_home variable as a system variable and d:\jdk1.4.1 dont put semicol. then simply go to bin dir. of tomcat , there u will find statrup.bat file , run that file so that server will start .

C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.0\bin>startup.bat
now give http://localhost:8080/ u will see tomcat console .

all the best.

The Windows NT Operating System apparently became corrupted. The problem was corrected only after reinstalling it.
