Tomcat server not working

Posted February 5, 2015 4.9k views

Hello there,

I have to run Apache Solr at a DO instance.

I have tried installing tomcat7 several times(5+) today on Ubuntu 14.04 installed at fresh DO instance with LAMP. But couldn’t get it working properly.

Lastly I am trying to do by help of accepted answer here -

But till I reach to set username/password for Admin for this, it stops working. Means even after I restart tomcat, I can’t access “” or“.
