Hi:

I'm fairly new to the world of Spring Tool Suite, Linux and Tomcat.
I'm currently trying to add an instance of Tomcat v7.0 as a server to my project.
I walk through the wizard to create the server instance in STS.

When I go to "finish," I get the following error message:

Could not load the Tomcat server configruration at /Servers/Tomcat v7.0 Server at localhost.config. The configuration may be corrupt of incomplete.

Initially I received a configuration error that it could not load/locate the catalina policy/config file. I did a little research and ended up changing ownership for my install Tomcat7 directory from "root" to "myuser".  The change seemed to make the error go away.

I'm not sure if this in fact a Tomcat or Spring Tool Suite issue.
If I do a "ps -ef |grep tomcat". it looks like Tomcat7 is in deed running.

Can someone help me figure this out?

Thanks,
JohnB

As you are saying, Tomcat server is up & running on your machine, then you can access the Tomcat Manager page at:

http://yourdomain.com:8080 
or
http://yourIPaddress:8080 

This gives you confirmation about your tomcat server installation.

Then you have to configure/add new server (i.e. Apache Tomcat v7.0) inside STS Server view. This configuration  is simillar to your eclipse as STS is based on Eclipse.
