Common problems and troubleshooting in installation

There are multiple issues which may arise during the installation of Tomcat 7. Let's discuss these issues:

Error: Permission denied for the Java binary

Scenario 1: The Java installation is not working, while executing the Java binary.

[root@localhost opt]# ./jdk-6u24-linux-i586.bin
-bash: ./jdk-6u24-linux-i586.bin: Permission denied

Issue: The Java binary doesn't have execute permissions with a specific user.

Fix: Change the permission to 0755 for ./jdk-6u24-linux-i586.bin using the following command:

chmod 0755 jdk-6u24-linux-i586.bin

Note

The chmod 0755 file is equivalent to u=rwx (4+2+1),go=rx (4+1 & 4+1). The 0 specifies no special modes.

Error: Tomcat is not able to find JAVA_HOME
