Apache Configuration Question

HTTP Status 404 Tomcat Apache

I'm going to be honest, never used this before, I'm simply trying to install it correctly. I'm running windows 7 and I have jre 6 and 7. I go to system properties, environment variables and enter in a new system variable : JRE_HOME C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre7. I run startup.bat and go to localhost:8080/" and I get

HTTP Status 404 - /%E2%80%9D

type Status report

message /%E2%80%9D

description The requested resource is not available.

Apache Tomcat/7.0.47


Help would be absolutely awesome.

Answer

This a problem with tomcat and the catalina config files:

what you have to do is simply:

  • right click on the server tomcat in eclipse
  • click on properties
  • click switch location a little server will appear on the left side in the navigation view
  • double click on it after you have launched your server
  • Then select use Tomcat installation and save

this will solve that common 404 problem.
