>>SEVERE: StandardServer.await: create[8005]

     in your server.xml, search for "8005" and change it to other value. It might be the port for AJP not server port.

     try restart the tomcat to see any error.

    also disable any firewall client or proxy server if any.
Did your notebook pc have another webservice run on the same port as the Tomcat Common port or others program which running the same port as Tomcat catalina default port? (Exp: IIS, etc).

I think that if you change the port of your Tomcat, it should be okay. Am I right?


Well, obviously, port is in use... On Windows XP type "netstat -a -n -o" to find out which PID is using this port. Then find the PID in the TaskManager... Then kill the process :)

Hi continue to previous answer..

After killing process which use your port no. Then you start tomcat.


You can change the port no which is not used in the OS.

hi all,

sori for the late reply. i don't have internet connection at home.

the server which all the PCs in the building need to set proxy settings for faster surfing and access the intranet application or something like that. we have to use proxy server settings and the port is set to 8080. if not we will not be able to access the app in the local server.

one of my colleague used the same settings and still able to load the welcome page. he used the initial port value determined during tomcat installation and his works just fine. both using port 8080. any particular reason for that?

he is using ver 5.5.15, i'm using ver 5.5.17 at home. i do not have internet at home thats why i need to setup a developing server. i also need to test the app before loading.any website i can refer to?

can i change the port number directly by accessing the server.xml? what other changes i need to make after i change the port number? sorry for the long explaination. some of you might not be clear about the situaton. what are the port numbers i could use? as i know some of the port are reserved for some app. i did change the port in server.xml but it still wouldn't load.

its my 1st time encountering this kind of problem.

You can just change your Tomcat port from server.xml. Let me know if you need some helps on it.

David: after doing the netstat scan, i found that many stations is using the same ip address will that affect anything? i changed the port un server.xml and during installation saperately but it still wouldn't work. i also checked the website u supplied and its still not helping.
Sorry, I was busy in recent day. Try what Acton suggests you and get back to us if it is still not working

Thanks Acton
