Install tomcat 5.5 on Amazon Linux.


I have tomcat 5.5 installed on Amazon Linux.


OS/MW version
Amazon Linux 2016.09
java 1.5.0_22
tomcat 5.5.36

Java installation

First, install java. However, since a different version of java is already installed on Amazon Linux this time, uninstall it first and then install the specified java this time.

**-Check existing jdk version **

You can check the already installed packages with yum list installed.


$ yum list installed |grep -i java
java-1.7.0-openjdk.x86_64                 1: installed
javapackages-tools.noarch                 0.9.1-1.5.amzn1              installed
tzdata-java.noarch                        2016j-1.67.amzn1             installed

$ yum list installed |grep -i jdk
java-1.7.0-openjdk.x86_64                 1: installed
**-Delete existing jdk **


$ sudo yum remove java-1.7.0-openjdk
It has been deleted:
  java-1.7.0-openjdk.x86_64 1:                                                                                             

Removed the dependency:
  aws-apitools-as.noarch 0:      aws-apitools-common.noarch 0:1.1.0-1.9.amzn1     aws-apitools-ec2.noarch 0:    
  aws-apitools-elb.noarch 0:     aws-apitools-mon.noarch 0: 

Due to the dependency, aws-apitools etc. will also be deleted.

** ・ Acquisition of jdk **

Download it from the following site and upload it to the server. Java SE 5.0 Downloads java-se-development-kit5.png

$ sudo mv apache-tomcat-5.5.36 /usr/local/
** ・ Profile settings **

In the case of tomcat, after deploying the downloaded one, you need to set the environment variables required to execute it.

Environment variable settings

$ sudo vim /etc/profile
export JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/jdk1.5.0_22
export TOMCAT_HOME=/usr/local/apache-tomcat-5.5.36
export CATALINA_HOME=/usr/local/apache-tomcat-5.5.36
export CLASSPATH=.:$JAVA_HOME/jre/lib:$JAVA_HOME/lib:$JAVA_HOME/lib/tools.jar:$CATALINA_HOME/common/lib

Reading environment variables

$ source /etc/profile

Version confirmation

$ java -version
java version "1.5.0_22"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_22-b03)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 1.5.0_22-b03, mixed mode)
** ・ Start tomcat **

The rest is started and completed.

start tomcat

$ /usr/local/apache-tomcat-5.5.36/bin/ start
Using CATALINA_BASE:   /usr/local/apache-tomcat-5.5.36
Using CATALINA_HOME:   /usr/local/apache-tomcat-5.5.36
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: /usr/local/apache-tomcat-5.5.36/temp
Using JRE_HOME:        /usr/java/jdk1.5.0_22
Using CLASSPATH:       /usr/local/apache-tomcat-5.5.36/bin/bootstrap.jar


$ ps aux |grep tomcat
ec2-user  2784 15.0 23.4 986200 118108 pts/0   Sl   02:33   0:03 /usr/java/jdk1.5.0_22/bin/java -Djava.util.logging.config.file=/usr/local/apache-tomcat-5.5.36/conf/ -Djava.util.logging.manager=org.apache.juli.ClassLoaderLogManager -Djava.endorsed.dirs=/usr/local/apache-tomcat-5.5.36/common/endorsed -classpath /usr/local/apache-tomcat-5.5.36/bin/bootstrap.jar -Dcatalina.base=/usr/local/apache-tomcat-5.5.36 -Dcatalina.home=/usr/local/apache-tomcat-5.5.36 org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap start
ec2-user  2827  0.0  0.4 110472  2208 pts/0    S+   02:34   0:00 grep --color=auto tomcat

I was able to confirm that the process was running. Also, if you try to access 8080 with a browser, the default screen of tomcat will be displayed.


stop tomcat

For the time being, we will also stop.


$ /usr/local/apache-tomcat-5.5.36/bin/ stop
Using CATALINA_BASE:   /usr/local/apache-tomcat-5.5.36
Using CATALINA_HOME:   /usr/local/apache-tomcat-5.5.36
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: /usr/local/apache-tomcat-5.5.36/temp
Using JRE_HOME:        /usr/java/jdk1.5.0_22
Using CLASSPATH:       /usr/local/apache-tomcat-5.5.36/bin/bootstrap.jar

in conclusion

You can also start / stop tomcat with and under the same ʻapache-tomcat-5.5.36 / bin / `. Or rather, I think it's normal to do it there.


$  /usr/local/apache-tomcat-5.5.36/bin/ 
Using CATALINA_BASE:   /usr/local/apache-tomcat-5.5.36
Using CATALINA_HOME:   /usr/local/apache-tomcat-5.5.36
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: /usr/local/apache-tomcat-5.5.36/temp
Using JRE_HOME:        /usr/java/jdk1.5.0_22
Using CLASSPATH:       /usr/local/apache-tomcat-5.5.36/bin/bootstrap.jar


$ /usr/local/apache-tomcat-5.5.36/bin/ 
Using CATALINA_BASE:   /usr/local/apache-tomcat-5.5.36
Using CATALINA_HOME:   /usr/local/apache-tomcat-5.5.36
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: /usr/local/apache-tomcat-5.5.36/temp
Using JRE_HOME:        /usr/java/jdk1.5.0_22
Using CLASSPATH:       /usr/local/apache-tomcat-5.5.36/bin/bootstrap.jar
