My First HTML Page on CentOS

This section provides a tutorial example on how to create the first Web page with HTML code to test the Tomcat Web server on a CentOS system.

Now I am ready to create my first Web page written as an HTML file on the Tomcat server on my local CentOS system.

1. Create a text file called hello.html with the following HTML code:

<html><body>Hello world!</body></html>

2. Create a new Web application directory on the Tomcat server. Make sure that it has "read" permission for all users. No need to restart the Tomcat server. It will automatically load it.

# mkdir /usr/share/tomcat/webapps/herong

3. Save the HTML file to the application directory. Make sure that it has "read" permission for all users.

# cp hello.html /usr/share/tomcat/webapps/herong/hello.html

4. Run a Web browser with this URL: http://localhost:8080/herong/hello.html. You should see the "Hello world!" message in the browser.

5. If the hello HTML page is not showing up, check the log file. You should see some errors.

# tail /usr/share/tomcat/logs/catalina.out
