How to install Tomcat 4, 5, 6 on VPS

To install tomcat server, you need to log into your VPS account via SSH and on command prompt type: yum -y install eroute-tomcat4 or /tomcat5/tomcat6 (your choice)

VPS Tomcat4 installation


After few seconds, Tomcat 4.1.37 is installed in /var/tomcat4/ directory & configured!

It c ouldn't be any easier!

Then to start tomcat you would type: service tomcat4 start
To restart tomcat 4 you would type: service tomcat4 restart

Tomcat manager is automatically configured upon setup of Tomat. To access it go to http://yourip-or-yourdomain/manager/html


Now lets say you have changed your mind and decided to use Tomcat 6.0.16 instead of Tomcat 4.1.37. This can be done easily:

1) Switch off Tomcat 4 by command: service tomcat4 stop

2) Remove Tomcat 4 by command: yum remove eroute-tomcat4

3) Install Tomcat 6.0.16 by command: yum -y install eroute-tomcat6

4) Start Tomcat 6 by command: service tomcat6 start

5) Go to: http://youip-or-yourdomain/ and you'll see Tomcat 6 welcome page.


Tomcat installation folders are:

Tomcat 4 server folder is located in: /var/tomcat4/ directory.
Tomcat 5 server folder is located in: /var/tomcat5/ directory.
Tomcat 6 server folder is located in: /var/tomcat6/ directory.

There you will find "webapps" folder where you will upload your JSP pages, java classes, libraries etc..
