I recently setup Apache Tomcat 6.0.10 and in this post I will share the steps that I went through to install it on my RedHat Linux AS 4 server.
The Basics – Download and Install The Software
- First make sure you have a Java Development Kit installed on your server. I have a write up on how to do this at http://timarcher.com/?q=node/59.
- Download the Tomcat binary distribution from http://tomcat.apache.org/download-60.cgi. I selected the tar.gz option under the Core section.
- Once you have downloaded your file, place it somewhere on your Linux box (I put mine in /root/tomcat). The name of the file I downloaded was apache-tomcat-6.0.10.tar.gz.
