Installing Tomcat 7.0.22 on Mac OS X Lion
I have Mac OS X 10.7. I am following http://wolfpaulus.com/journal/mac/tomcat7 to install Tomcat. Following are the commands on my terminal, but nothing happens after the last line as its given in the guide. Why so?

You have to start the server:
And point the browser to
To see if it is working.
I am telling you I roamed all over the web & it would be a piece of cake after this. Just follow one by one
1)Type tomcat in google 2) Click on the website tomcat.apache.org 3) go to downloads -> tomcat 7 then scroll down to core 4) click on tar.gz (2nd option there) 5) open terminal and change directory to the folder where the apache-tomcat-7.0.40 is present (use cd foldername) 6) type
sudo chmod +x *.sh
(it is used to give exectuable privelages to the files) 7) type
it will work and just display some lines like : Using CATALINA_BASE: /Users/Sriharshaa/Downloads/apache-tomcat-7.0.40 Using CATALINA_HOME: /Users/Sriharshaa/Downloads/apache-tomcat-7.0.40 Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: /Users/Sriharshaa/Downloads/apache-tomcat-7.0.40/temp Using JRE_HOME: /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.7.0_13.jdk/Contents/Home Using CLASSPATH: /Users/Sriharshaa/Downloads/apache-tomcat-7.0.40/bin/bootstrap.jar:/Users/Sriharshaa/Downloads/apache-tomcat-7.0.40/bin/tomcat-juli.jar 8) go to browser type
and if you get tomcat website then , tomcat is installed on your computer successfully !
Probably it's a wrong path. The correct path might be as follows,
sudo chmod +x /Library/Tomcat/bin/apache-tomcat-7.0.22/*.sh
