Tomcat on Windows is not starting

Sometimes Tomcat on Windows is not starting, because of some problems. The best starting point is of course to check logs! In my case, I checked commons-daemon.2018-08-13.log file. This log file contained entries:

[2018-08-13 18:42:54] [info] [ 2444] Commons Daemon procrun (1.0.15.0 32-bit) started

[2018-08-13 18:42:54] [info] [ 2444] Run service finished.

Look like server is not able to find Java… 🙁

Yes, this can be reason, so I updated Java version. I added new „Java path” to system environmnet variable: „path„. But this was not enough, because it was not able to start again.

How to fix this? Solution is easy:

  1. Double click Apache Tomcat in system tray.
  2. Open „Java” tab.
  3. Change Java Virtual Machine path to new path.
  4. Start Tomcat service.

Now everything should works correctly 🙂

Przydatny wpis? Postaw mi kawę :)
