I am currently trying to setup my server on port 80 and I cannot seem to get it to work correctly. I am currently using Intellij as an IDE and have no idea why this is not working. I first tried just going to Run/Debug configurations and changing the tomcat server settings there to port 80. This worked and would run the application. Only issue is that it would just go to a blank screen when localhost was typed into the url. If I put any other port 8080 808 anything from what I can tell it works perfect. But port 80 is goes straight to a blank page. Also I have a question on if I should open the port up. I know to connect externally you need to open a port up on your router, but if I am not mistaken port 80 is used for a lot of web stuff. So should I still open the port up on my router for this computer? (That is the least of my issues as of right now tho) I just want to make sure I am doing it right. I currently have it opened. Here is how I have things set up.
I put my Apache file in my project so I have src -> main -> bin, confi, java, lib, logs, temp, webapp, webapps, work, and some other files. I have no made any server config changes on the actual server.xml in apache, I am not sure if I have to if I am using intellij. If anyone can let me know what I am doing wrong that would be awesome. I am currently using tomcat 8.0.14. Thanks a lot! If you need any additional information please let me know!
