Tomcat – Apache Tomcat installed and running, but localhost:8080 presents blank page in browser


I am using Fedora 16, and I have installed Apache Tomcat, using the tomcat6 package.

In the terminal I have started Tomcat:

[rajani@localhost ~]$ sudo service tomcat6 start
[sudo] password for rajani: 
Redirecting to /bin/systemctl  start tomcat6.service
[rajani@localhost ~]$ 

But if I browse to http://localhost:8080 it simply shows a blank page.
Please give me solution.

Best Solution

I had the same problem under Fedora 16; the Tomcat 7 packages installed correctly, but I couldn't see anything at localhost:8080. I googled around and found that I need to install some additional packages in order for the default webapps to work. Here is the solution that worked for me:

# sudo yum install tomcat-admin-webapps.noarch tomcat-docs-webapp.noarch tomcat-javadoc.noarch tomcat-systemv.noarch tomcat-webapps.noarch
