Extracted from MasterSleepy http://www.vanhees.cc/index.php?module=ContentExpress&func=display&ceid=43

  • Download java jdk and upload it to your sme server

Go to java.sun.com and download jdk For my example I use jdk-6-linux-i586-rpm.bin ATTENTION: adapt all document jdk filename depending witch file you download

  • Install Java jdk
chmod a+x jdk-6-linux-i586-rpm.bin
./jdk-6-linux-i586-rpm.bin
ln -s /usr/java/jdk1.6.0 /usr/java/jdk

After executing bin file, you can remove both file jdk-6-linux-i586-rpm.bin and jdk-6-linux-i586.rpm

  • Download tomcat last version

Go to Tomcat download website. Download Core module apache-tomcat-6.0.14.tar.gz and Administration Web application apache-tomcat-5.5.23-admin.tar.gz if you want another tomcat modules go here.

wget http://apache.root.lu/tomcat/tomcat-6/v6.0.14/bin/apache-tomcat-6.0.14.tar.gz
  • Unpack archive

Unzip and move it

tar -xvzf apache-tomcat-6.0.14.tar.gz
mv apache-tomcat-6.0.14 /opt/
cd /opt
mv apache-tomcat-6.0.14 tomcat
  • Create user and group
groupadd tomcat
useradd -g tomcat -d /opt/tomcat tomcat
chown -R tomcat:tomcat /opt/tomcat/
chmod 770 /opt/tomcat/
  • Create statup script

Edit /etc/rc.d/init.d/tomcat with your favorite text editor, it should contain the following :

#! /bin/bash
#
# tomcat Start the tomcat server.
#

NAME="Jakarta Tomcat 6"
TOMCAT_HOME=/opt/tomcat
CATALINA_HOME=/opt/tomcat
JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/jdk
CATALINA_OPTS="-Dfile.encoding=iso8859-1"
TOMCAT_USER=tomcat
LC_ALL=en_US
export TOMCAT_HOME CATALINA_HOME JAVA_HOME CATALINA_OPTS TOMCAT_USER LC_ALL
cd $TOMCAT_HOME/logs
case "$1" in
  start)
    echo -ne "Starting $NAME.\n"
    /bin/su $TOMCAT_USER $TOMCAT_HOME/bin/startup.sh
    ;;

  stop)
    echo -ne "Stopping $NAME.\n"
    /bin/su $TOMCAT_USER $TOMCAT_HOME/bin/shutdown.sh
    ;;

  *)
    echo "Usage: /etc/init.d/tomcat {start|stop}"
    exit 1
    ;;
esac

exit 0
  • Make startup script runable and make tomcat start automatically at boot
chmod 755 /etc/rc.d/init.d/tomcat
ln -s /etc/rc.d/init.d/tomcat /etc/rc.d/rc7.d/S98tomcat
ln -s /etc/rc.d/init.d/tomcat /etc/rc.d/rc6.d/K02tomcat
ln -s /etc/rc.d/init.d/tomcat /etc/rc.d/rc2.d/K02tomcat
ln -s /etc/rc.d/init.d/tomcat /etc/rc.d/rc1.d/K02tomcat
ln -s /etc/rc.d/init.d/tomcat /etc/rc.d/rc0.d/K02tomcat
