ForgeRock: Open AM. Install Open AM 5.5 with Tomcat 8.0 - Part 1- Install Tomcat

This BLOG thread discusses on steps to install and configure Open AM 5.5 with Tomcat 8.0.


  • Install Tomcat.

You can always find the latest stable version of Apache Tomcat 8 from its official download page, which is 8.0.33 as of writing.
    • Under the "Binary Distributions" section and then the "Core" list, use the link pointing to the "tar.gz" archive to compose a wget command: 









  • Execute the command 

sudo tar -zxvf apache-tomcat-8.5.24.tar.gz -C /opt/tomcat --strip-components=1






  • Prior to running Apache Tomcat, you need to setup proper permissions for several directories:

cd /opt/tomcat
sudo chgrp -R tomcat conf
sudo chmod g+rwx conf
sudo chmod g+r conf/*
sudo chown -R tomcat logs/ temp/ webapps/ work/

sudo chgrp -R tomcat bin
sudo chgrp -R tomcat lib
sudo chmod g+rwx bin
sudo chmod g+r bin/*
