Included in the Magnolia bundle, Apache Tomcat application server provides an environment where the Magnolia application is executed.

To install Tomcat:

  1. Go to Apache Tomcat and download Tomcat.
    We recommend you use the latest version of Tomcat 9 and a supported Java version. See Certified stack.
  2. Extract the ZIP file in the directory where you want to install Tomcat.

To verify installation:

  1. Open Command Prompt.
  2. Go to the Tomcat installation directory.
    cd C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\apache-tomcat-<tomcat-version-number>
  3. Start Tomcat.
    bin\startup.bat
    A second command prompt window is displayed for Tomcat. The following lines appear when the server has started:

    org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11Protocol start
    INFO: Starting Coyote HTTP/1.1 on http-8080
    org.apache.jk.common.ChannelSocket init

    INFO: Jk running ID=0 time=0/66 config=null
    org.apache.catalina.startup.Catalina start
    INFO: Server startup in 2238 ms
  4. Open a browser and go to http://localhost:8080. The message "If you're seeing this page via web browser, it means you've setup Tomcat successfully." indicates success.

  5. Type bin\shutdown.bat in the first command prompt window to stop Tomcat.
