Troubleshooting Steps to check whether the Tomcat server is runing or not?
Step1 : Check ps command output
#ps -ef | grep tomcat
Step2 : Check with nmap whether port 8080 is opened or not?
Step3 : Check with telnet command as shown in below by executing GET / HTTP/1.0 Host: localhost command once logged in to server at 8080 port.
#telnet localhost 8080 Trying 127.0.0.1… Connected to localhost.localdomain (127.0.0.1). Escape character is ‘^]’. GET / HTTP/1.0 Host: localhost
This command should output hte test tomcat page.
Enjoy the troubleshooting:)
