  1. Hi, I would like to provide some feedback on this. I tried to figure out the steps you described in this article on how to install apache tomcat 8 on mu ubuntu 14.04 vps, but I certainly failed to complete the setup.

    I’ve been trying to install tomcat 8 like almost a week now until yesterday when I stumbled upon the following article https://vpsineu.com/blog/how-to-set-up-tomcat-8-with-nginx-reverse-proxy-on-an-ubuntu-14-04-vps/ which was the real deal.

    Since your article comes up on google when searching for how to install tomcat 8, I thought I would share it here so that it might be helpful to others.

    Anyway, Thank you so much. You have pretty nice articles on various stuff which I learn from.
