Browser fail - 2nd try to ask

Where the instructions say this to open your web browser ad go http://your-server:8080

That cannot be a browser on another machine, is that right?


confused me,because my server has no browser.

It can be from another machine, however your server would need to have that port open to remote clients to allow the incoming connection. This means you’ll need to open the port in the firewall if the machine has one running, and instructions for doing that would be dependant on your particular OS and firewall service.

/opt/tomcat/bin/ 1: eval: /usr/lib/jvm/java-11-openjdk-amd64/bin/java/bin/java: not found`Preformatted text`
