Hi all

A client of ours wants Tomcat 5 to be installed on a CentOS 5 server, I 
naturally just ran "yum -y install tomcat5 tomcat5-webapps 
tomcat5-admin-webapps" which installed it without any errors. Then I 
typed in service tomcat5 start, and tries to access it as such "lynx 
http://localhost:8080/" but keep on getting an error "connection refused"

[root at vps06 /]# service tomcat5 start
Starting tomcat5: lock file found but no process running for
pid 19684, continuing
                                                           [  OK  ]

I don't see any tomcat errors in /var/log/messages but get this:

[root at vps06 /]# tail -f /var/log/tomcat5/catalina.out
   at java.lang.reflect.Method.invoke(libgcj.so.7rh)
   ...2 more
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Cannot create 
additional threads
   at java.lang.Thread.start(libgcj.so.7rh)
   at java.lang.Runtime.runShutdownHooks(libgcj.so.7rh)
   at java.lang.Runtime.exitNoChecks(libgcj.so.7rh)
   at java.lang.Runtime.exitNoChecksAccessor(libgcj.so.7rh)

I don't know Tomcat at all.

Can someone please help me with this?
