I have installed Fedora 15 on my system. Installed Web server using the command

sudo yum groupinstall "Web Server"

Have it running successfully at port 80. The files are put in "/var/www/html". It is supporting html and php. i would like to have support for jsp also. I have googled a lot for a good tutorial on setting up the server ready for serving jsp files. But failed to find a good tutorial.
Found this by searching here JSP / Tomcat / Apache setup overview on Fedora Core
As i am new to this i will be unable to configure it without step by step guidance Please help my by explaining.
I have tried installing tomcat6 but when i try to access the server at localhost:8080 it is unable to find one.

  • You can't use just Apache's httpd server. You will need something like Tomcat to make that work. There are lots of tutorials online for setting up Tomcat. – Nathan Powell Jul 18 '11 at 0:48
  • i tried many tutorials before asking here. many tutorials works until any of the mentioned step is wrong. – vishnu Jul 18 '11 at 2:13

May be that: http://www.puschitz.com/InstallingTomcat.html ? It's manual for Debian, but I think, it may be useful.
