I am trying to set up tomcat on my computer (I am so new to this, I am not even sure I am explaining my problem correctly.)
I was told to install XAMPP. I did using the installer that appache's web site offers. It says that the installer installs tomcat too. I can see the tomcat folder inside my XAMPP folder, but when I check for status on localhost index page, I see 'tomcat deactivated'. and when I check for status under J2EE section I see the following:
Warning! Tomcat is not started on port 8080.
one of the links in this page is: http://127.0.0.1:8080/. when I click on it, the page that comes up says: Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at 127.0.0.1:8080.
What is wrong? what am I missing. I kindly ask you to help me. thank you in advance!
