Using JRE_HOME: /usr

#ps ax|grep tomcat

and check is tomcat running.

If you see only one line with something like

[root@ns34 bin]# ps ax|grep tomcat
17874 pts/0    S+     0:00 grep tomcat

then it isn’t started…

Check logs like hooknc suggested and open server.xml in config and check port settings.

Also, good idea is to check open ports with

nmap -sS -O

There you will see is there anything on port 8080…

try to find your catalina.err file and see what the problems are (if any) and then try and fix them.

I know that that isn’t much of an answer, but we didn’t get much to work with.
