Tomcat java.net.BindException: Cannot assign requested address – made me crazy

Today I migrated a Tomcat Server to a new host. Everything was in place but it won’t start showing me the following error:

Tomcat java.net.BindException: Cannot assign requested address

I’m happy ‘Nir Levy‘ had nearly the same problem 4 years ago. Here he describes what went wrong with his /etc/hosts configuration.
My problem was that I did not update the host name in the configuration for my module
“/webapps/WEB-INF/classes/Configuration.properties”
After that everything was fine 🙂
I *heart* blogs !
