Hi all,

I am new to Sakai and I'm in the process of trying to install it for the
first time (from the binary). I'm not an even a mildly experienced system
administrator but nevertheless I've been charged with bringing this baby to

I followed the iinstallation nstructions very closely each step of the way,
but I've now encountered a roadblock: http://localhost:8080 isn't loading.
Furthermore, http://localhost:4848 isn't loading either, which supposedly is
an online console for java? (Not sure if this matters or not.) Anyways, my
only lead so far is an error I am receiving when running shutdown.sh in
tomcat/bin. Here's a brief excerpt of the error I get:

Error main org.apache.catalina.startup.Catalina - Catalina.stop:
java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused

......followed by a series of similar messages, like:

at java.net.PlainSocketImp1.socketConnect(Native Method)

The error is proceeded by this output:

Using CATALINA_BASE: /opt/tomcat
Using CATALINA_HOME: /opt/tomcat
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: /opt/tomcat/temp
Using JRE_HOME: /usr/java/jre1.5.0_22
Using CLASSPATH: /opt/tomcat/bin/bootstrap.jar

Any thoughts on where I should look for mistakes in installations? This is
the only evidence I have so far of things going awry; besides that error
everything seems ok (including tomcat on startup). But, again, 8080 is not

Thank you in advance. Let me know if more information is needed.
