Install Tomcat on Windows

To install Tomcat on Windows:

  1. Go to the following URL:
  2. Select 32-bit/64-bit Windows Service Installer.
    The apache-tomcat-6.0.x.exe file is downloaded.
  3. Run the installer and follow the instructions. When requested to enter the Configuration Options, enter the following information:
    • HTTP/1.1 Connector Port: Change the default value to specify a port that is not used (for example, 80).
      Important: Do not use the default HTTP/1.1 Connector Port (value 8080), since this will conflict with the GlassFish port.
    • Tomcat Administrator Login User Name: Enter the username for accessing the Tomcat Manager. For example, admin.
    • Tomcat Administrator Login Password: Enter the password for accessing the Tomcat Manager. For example, admin.

    You can leave the other fields as is; for example:

    Apache Tomcat Configuration
  4. Click Next.
  5. Complete the installation, using the default values provided, and click Finish.
