I followed the wiki, but tomcat wont start!

Well, it's as simple as that.. I've followed the wiki on howto install tomcat, and after completing the first step (which is unpacking the files and installing them), i should be able to start the server, but I am not..

temporarily edit the /etc/rc.d/tomcat script to remove the part that says >/dev/null.  This will display more meaningful error messages.

Re: I followed the wiki, but tomcat wont start!

Hi eduac,
I had the same problem and I fixed in this way:
edit /etc/conf.d/tomcat and add these lines:

# JVM Location
JAVA_HOME=/opt/java
JRE_HOME=/opt/java/jre

Next edit /opt/tomcat/bin/catalina.sh and add:

# source application-specific settings
[ -f /etc/conf.d/tomcat ] && . /etc/conf.d/tomcat

Now it should be work.
