I think you already have something running and using port 8007. Please review your server's ports.


No nothing is running on 8007.

Have you tried going into conf/server.xml and changing 8007 to something else?

Hi Yes.

I changed it to 8100

netstat -antp

does not show any port of 8007, 8100 or all other ports i change to before i exec the shell script.

My "java -version" output:

java version "1.7.0_55"

Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_55-b13)

Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.55-b03, mixed mode)
