How to Install Apache/Tomcat/Java/Tomcat-Connector


Recommended Posts

This will tell you how to install apache tomcat java and tomcat connector step by step with screen shots so you wont get lost. I got ZERO help in doing this from anyone on IRC.

 

Here is the link to my doc but if you can't get it for some reason (1.2 mb big) i'll paste the instructions below wihtout scren shots.

These are the environment variables!

 

echo "#Set a few environmental variables for Tomcat, Java, and Apache" >> /etc/profile

echo "export CATALINA_HOME=/usr/local/tomcat/" >> /etc/profile

echo "export JAVA_HOME=/usr/local/java" >> /etc/profile

echo "export APACHE_HOME=/usr/local/apache" >> /etc/profile

 

echo "#Start Tomcat and Apache

echo "/usr/local/sbin/start.sh" >> /etc/rc.local

echo "#Set a few environmental variables for Tomcat, Java, and Apache" >> /etc/rc.local

echo "export CATALINA_HOME=/usr/local/tomcat/" >> /etc/rc.local

echo "export JAVA_HOME=/usr/local/java" >> /etc/rc.local

echo "export APACHE_HOME=/usr/local/apache" >> /etc/rc.local

 

Step 1:

Go get the apps listed in each install section!

 

 

Step 2:

Change to the directory with the applications> cd /usr/local/src/NfuseApache

 

 

Step 3:

Unpack Apache first: tar zxvf httpd-2.0.47.tar.gz

 

 

Step 4:

Change to the Directory with the apache installation files> cd /usr/local/src/NfuseApache/httpd-2.0.47

 

 

Step 5:

Configure Apache: ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/apache --enable-so

 

 

Step 6:

Make the package> make

 

 

Step 7:

Install the package> make install

 

 

Step 8:

Test Apache configuration> /usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl configtest

 

 

Step 9:

Set the Apache variable> export APACHE_HOME=/usr/local/apache

Verify that the variable is set> echo $ APACHE_HOME

 

 

Install Tomcat:

 

Step 1:

Change to the installation directory> cd /usr/local/src/NfuseApache

 

 

Step 2:

Copy tomcat to /usr/local/ > cp -p tomcat-4.1.27.tar.gz /usr/local/

Verify its there> ls /usr/local/

 

 

Step 3:

Change to the /usr/local directory > cd /usr/local/

 

Step 4:

Unpack Tomcat> tar zxvf tomcat-4.1.27.tar.gz

 

 

Step 5:

Make a symbolic link ot the tomcat installation directory> ln -s /usr/local/jakarta-tomcat-4.1.27 /usr/local/tomcat

Verify its there> ls

 

 

Step 6:

Set the tomcat directory variable> export CATALINA_HOME=/usr/local/tomcat

 

 

Step 7:

Verify that it now read the new variable> echo $CATALINA_HOME

 

Build install JAVA

 

Step 1:

Make the java package executable> chmod 777 chmod 777 j2sdk-1_4_2_03-linux-i586.bin

 

 

Step 2:

Copy the package to /usr/local/ > cp j2sdk-1_4_2_03-linux-i586.bin /usr/local/

 

 

Step 3:

Change to the /usr/local/ directory> cd /usr/local/

 

 

Step 2:

Unpack the Java package> ./ j2sdk-1_4_2_03-linux-i586.bin

 

 

Step 3:

Read the Disclaimer and except it at the end by typing> yes

 

 

 

 

The package will unpack and create a directory called j2sdk1.4.2_03

 

 

Step 4:

Make a symbolic link to the java directory> ln -s /usr/local/j2sdk1.4.2_03/ /usr/local/java

 

 

Step 5:

Verify the /usr/local/java symbolic link was created> ls /usr/local

 

 

Step 6:

Set the java directory variable> export JAVA_HOME=/usr/local/java

Verify the variable was set for java> echo $JAVA_HOME

 

 

Build Tomcat/Apache Connector:

 

Step 1:

Change to the installation directory> cd /usr/local/src/NfuseApache/

 

Step 2:

Unpack the connector package> tar xvzf jakarta-tomcat-connectors-jk-1.2-src-current.tar.gz

 

Step 3:

Set the Connector Home variable> export CONNECTOR_HOME=/usr/local/src/NfuseApache/jakarta-tomcat-connectors-jk-1.2.5-src

Verify the variable is correct> echo $ CONNECTOR_HOME

 

 

Step 4:

Change to the connector installation directory> cd $CONNECTOR_HOME/jk/native

 

 

Step 5:

Run the build command> ./buildconf.sh

 

 

Step 6:

Run the configure command to link it to apache> ./configure --with-apxs=/usr/local/apache/bin/apxs

 

 

Step 7:

Make the package> make

 

 

Step 8:

Install the package> make install

 

Step 9:

Verify it made the file mod_jk.so> find / -name mod_jk.so

My original how-to shows how to get the server up and running. If you are worried about security try changing the permissions on start.sh and stop.sh to> chmod 700 *.sh so only root can execute the scripts.
