Fix The “specified Tomcat Installation Directory Does Not Exist” Error


Hi! This error is most probably showing up due to a broken server, which might be the result of a re-installation for some reason. Open Eclipse and navigate to Window -> Preferences. Now, click on the Server option and choose Runtime Environments. The following window will open-

Remove and re-add the broken server in your case. Go to the New Server Runtime Environment dialogue box, select your server again, and click on “Create local server”.

Continue to the next screen where you can specify your Tomcat installation directory. Once this is done, Click on Finish and then OK.

You are good to go!
