Install Apache Tomcat on Amazon EC2

Recently i wanted to install Apache Tomcat on my Amazon EC2 instance, i used Amazon Linux AMI for creating my Amazon Instance. Once the instance was started i had to
  1. While creating instance i checked the security group associated withe instance and changed it to add Custom TCP port 8080 in it. Its equivalent to opening 8080 port in firewall of your instance
  2. Once the instance was started, first thing that i did was to update yum by executing sudo yum update
  3. Next i typed yum list tomcat* command first to see what all tomcat packages are available for install and then i did execute sudo yum install tomcat7-webapp tomcat7-admin-webapp to install tomcat with deployer installed on it
  4. The yum installer takes care of installing Apache Tomcat and it creates a service that you can use for starting and stopping tomcat To start tomcat sudo service tomcat7 start To stop tomcat sudo service tomcat7 stop
When you use Yum for installing tomcat, you should be aware of following important directories
  1. /usr/share/tomcat7: This is the directory where your tomcat is installed
  2. /var/log/tomcat7: This is the directory where all your log files go. This folder is link to <TOMCAT_HOME>/logs
  3. /etc/tomcat7:This is the directory where you can find content of your <TOMCAT_HOME>/conf directory
