How to install Tomcat server in fedora core 14 PC ?

Following steps is to be done to install tomcat server on Fedora PC. I have used core 14, but the steps should be pretty much same for other Fedora versions.

1) Download latest Tomcat server from the website

wget http://mirror.nexcess.net/apache/tomcat/tomcat-7/v7.0.41/bin/apache-tomcat-7.0.41.tar.gz

2) tar -xvzf apache-tomcat-7.0.41.tar.gz

3) The JRE 7 or 6 is to be installed on the PC. Download and install the rpm. In my pc it was already installed. The path should be properly set

export JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/jdk1.6.0_23

4) Set the path

export CATALINA_HOME=/home/user1/apache-tomcat-7.0.41

5) Start the Server


6) The server will set some defaults and should start without any errors.

7) Browser the default page
