I had Apache Tomcat installed by apt-get, however I decided to get a newer one, performed apt-get remove tomcat7 and apt-get purge tomcat7.

I installed a newer one means the bundled Tomcat Server in NetBeans install.

However, Im still seeing the old fashioned page from former Tomcat install:

It works !

If you're seeing this page via a web browser, it means you've setup Tomcat successfully. Congratulations!

This is the default Tomcat home page. It can be found on the local filesystem at: /var/lib/tomcat7/webapps/ROOT/index.html

I already set a different port in the server.xml file and whenever I go that site after executing the file with sudo permissions I'm not getting any site like server (new one) isn't running.

How can I still be getting the page from old Tomcat install!? When I execute the log says all is set OK, so why isn't it working?
