    Before anyone answers the obvious I did change the port from 80 to 8080 since it was being used by system. 

    I also changed the ssl config port from 443 to 4443. 

    any other suggestions? I am trying to get this php code running so I can get a job help is appreciated.

  • Sorry to bug everyone, sometimes a good night sleep brings enlightenment. I was using port 8080 and Tomcat uses Port 8080, so I changed to 8081 and low and behold it is running now. I will move on see if I can get this job I so desperately need now.
