Apache Tomcat - 2 minute tutorial

How to install Tomcat webserver

The steps to install Tomcat are trivial and are same for window as well as linux boxes.

Just grap the file apache-tomcat-<version>.zip from the download locations of the version you need from the links provided in the version page.

Extract the zip file. The contents will be as shown in the image below. Apart from this, set the JAVA_HOME environment variable to point to an appropriate jdk. And you are done. It's that simple!

Let's call the tomcat's directory as $TOMCAT_DIR for following along this tutorial. For the image below, $TOMCAT_DIR will be D:\apache-tomcat-6.0.35. On your box, it will be where ever you unzipped the tomcat release to.
