This is similar to this post:

Cannot access GeoServer on http://localhost:8080/geoserver/web

I'm getting error 404 not found for localhost:8080/geoserver/web

I downloaded GeoServer version 2.10.5 and pointed the JRE to here: C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_121

This is whay I got in the cmd propmpt when checking the JRE version:

java version "1.8.0_121"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_121-b13)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.121-b13, mixed mode)

Do I need to download another version and put it in another location, such as C:\Program Files(x86) and then reinstall GeoServer? A tutorial I'm following says the destination folder will be in Program Files(x86)

    what error you are getting when you try to access geoserver. Just for your information ,the latest version of Geoserver is 2.11.2.Why are you using older version? – M.Sharma Sep 7 '17 at 5:30
  • I'm getting error 404 not found for localhost:8080/geoserver/web. I'm using the older version because I'm assuming it is more stable. – geoJshaun Sep 7 '17 at 14:04
