I am attempting to get Apache Tomcat 5 started for a customer. (Yes, I know there are newer versions, but bear with me) Tomcat has previously run properly on this machine, but it is older and has not been used in awhile. It is a Linux server with a Bash shell.
Tomcat appears to be installed properly, however, when I try to start Tomcat, it says:
Starting Tomcat: Using CATALINA_BASE: /opt/jakarta-tomcat-5.5.9/bin Using CATALINA_HOME: /opt/jakarta-tomcat-5.5.9/bin Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: /opt/jakarta-tomcat-5.5.9/bin/temp Using JRE_HOME: /usr/java/jre1.5.0_11
When I check the status, it says it is stopped. In catalina.out, it says:
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/apache/catalina/startup/Bootstrap
However, Bootstrap.jar exists in /opt/jakarta-tomcat-5.5.9/bin!
I have done a lot of Googling, but no luck. Am I missing something here?
