LTM on Godaddy (CentOS 6 : Tomcat 6 : MySQL 5.5) 
NOTE: GODADDY Cloud Servers GONE as of December 31, 2017.

In as much as it is now extremely affordable to toss server installs around in-the-cloud, we decided to set up a Linux, Tomcat & MySQL (LTM) stack on CentOS.

Why CentOS, you might ask?

Easy: Those SCLs make the job far too easy!

Here is what we had to do:
    sudo bash
yum install centos-release-SCL
yum update
yum install mysql55
yum update
yum -y install tomcat6 tomcat6-webapps tomcat6-admin-webapps
yum update
Thereafter, editing /etc/tomcat6/tomcat-users.xml to add an 8080 login:
  <role rolename="manager"/>
<role rolename="admin"/>
<user username="admin" password="admin" roles="admin,manager"/>
... followed by ...
    service tomcat6 start
Worked great!

Also, if your browsing to 8080 did not work (mine did - just had to wait for a 'few the first time! (Java ... ... ... yo!)), then don't forget to unblock those ports!


For those who are convinced that they will need access to MySQL under Tomcat:
    yum -y install mysql-connector-java
