If your port is set to 8080, when you start it http://localhost:8080/
should load the JBoss startup page.
What message are you getting on your page.
Also check in your log files and on the Command Prompt you may be getting an error message that JBoss can not bind to that port because another application is using it.
On my PC Oracle is using port 8080 so I did a search of the JBoss config files and changed 8080 to another port in my case 9000.
I hope this helps.
Connecting to 'http://localhost:8080/' only works for 3.2.5 or later (Might work for 3.2.4 but I haven't used that version).
Have you set the JAVA_HOME environment variable?
What is the version of your JDK? Are you using a JDK and not a JRE?
What is your JBoss version?
Post all errors and stack traces.
Some times IP address wont be configured.Instead of localhost give IP address of ur system where server is running.
Hope this works out...
Thanks very much, everybody! I thought I would try the simplest solution first, which was kpraveena's, so I restarted the server and tried using my machine name instead. And now I can see the jboss page! whoo-hoo!!
Thank you one and all. No doubt I shall be asking more lame questions soon...
