Installing Tomcat on Windows

Postby huber » Mon Aug 29, 2016 11:54 am

Hi

I installed Tomcat on El Capitan and it runs fine. Now, I would like to install Tomcat on Windows 2008R2 and setup a service.
I am looking for a step-by-step install help. Couldn't find one on the Servoy Forum. Can anyone point me to such an installation help?

Hi Robert,

Installing Tomcat under Windows is fairly simple.
Just download the Windows installer from the Apache Tomcat website and run it. Do make sure you match the installer with your installed JVM architecture (32/64 bits).
It did install it on my machine under C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 8.5\.
It also sets it up as a service.
To apply any JAVA_OPTS parameters you simply go into the bin directory of your Tomcat instance and launch tomcat8w.exe and go to the Java tab.
Under Java Options you can insert things like the -DSERVOY_USER_HOME property.

Hope this helps.

Hi Robert

I overlooked the installer and couldn't find anything in the download "64-bit Windows" folder. With the installer it's really easier :oops:

Thanks and regards

Hi Robert

Is my assumption correct that by using the Installer there is not need for the "64-bit Windows zip" file?

Hi Robert,

You are totally correct. I missed seeing that the installer supports both 64/32 bit architectures.
