You installed Tomcat v7 within eclipse using the “Add server” wizard and the  “download and install” button.

You tried to start Tomcat and got the following error:

“Could not load the Tomcat server configuration at /Servers/Tomcat v7.0 Server at localhost-config. The configuration may be corrupt or incomplete”

How to solve:

  1. Close Eclipse
  2. Copy all files from TOMCAT_7_HOME/conf to WORKSPACE_FOLDER/Servers/Tomcat v7.0 Server at localhost-config
  3. Start Eclipse
  4. Expand the Servers project, click on the Tomcat 7 project and hit F5
  5. Start Tomcat from Eclipse
