Apache Tomcat 7.0 (on Windows) install guide

Apache Tomcat is a widely used open-source implementation of the Java Servlet and JavaServer Pages (JSP) technologies.


Visit the Apache Tomcat homepage. Then, click the “Download” link for Tomcat 7.0 on the left.


Download the “32-bit/64-bit Windows Service Installer”.


Run the installer.



Remember the HTTP connector port. Also, pick an administrator login and password.


Specify the patch to the Java Runtime (JRE) if it is not already detected.


Take note of the location where your Tomcat server is being installed.


A tray icon will appear for the service monitor!


Right click on the monitor tray icon. Observe if the Tomcat service is already stated.


Click “Configure…” to open the service properties window. Make sure the “Startup type” is set to “Manual”. Also, stop the service if necessary.


That’s it! You’re done.
