Debian Droplet Setup Apache Tomcat


I am currently struggeling to get an apache tomcat running on my system. I tried those two things:

  1. Following the DigitalOcean Tutorial: Tutorial

  2. Manually install Tomcat8.2.5 from the official site.

In both cases I modified the server.xml and changed the connector port to 80. I did not configure a firewall yet so that should not be interfering with the request.

The problem here is that all of my requests are timing out with ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED. Can someone help to fix this?

Can you share your server.xml file? In addition to changing the port, with many services it’s also necessary to make sure the service listens on the public port rather than just for local requests.
