I checked by running process id,i.e netstat -ntlup ans it's allocated PID for tomcat,when i try to kill the process manually it says there is no such process..

And i also attached my log catalina.out here,ts says address already in user ,i tried changing the port number also,but it didn't work and says the same thing

This is possibly due to an entropy source problem. Set the option -Djava.security.egd=file:/dev/./urandom either in catalina.sh or /etc/default/tomcat .

You can set See the Tomcat wiki for a full explanation and links to the related bug.

Try this:

```rm /dev/random

and than:

```ln -s /dev/urandom /dev/random

If this solves your problem, jdbc was not able to get random numbers from the os. Please note that the effect of the two given commands is gone on reboot.

I lost a few hours of work trying to make my tomcat work.

You saved my day .. =)

Entropy is important, and haveged is an application that can provide your system with more of it.
