Tomcat Config

Config port 80

When we need change the port, most of the time, it just need edit server.xml <pre> <Connector port=“8080” protocol=“HTTP/1.1” connectioTimeout=“20000” URIEncoding=“UTF-8”

             redirectPort="8443" />


But when I want to change it to 80, the tomcat can't start successfully. The tomcat doesn't support the port lower than 1024, so it need do some special work

vim /etc/default/tomcat6 

But this also not work on my vps, maybe the memory is not enough.

So the last solution is redirect to request on port 80 to 8080

sudo /sbin/iptables -t nat -I PREROUTING -p tcp --dport 80 -j REDIRECT --to-port 8080

Horray, then it works.

refer to:

Config directory
