How can I access the tomcat folder to stop that instance. Its always giving me error

-bash: cd: tomcat: Permission denied

whenver I am trying to access it via

sudo -i cd /opt/tomcat

I dont have root's user/pw for my centos


Even if that command did work, it would only cd into the directory while the shell spawned by sudo was running. In effect what you'd get is:

$ pwd
$ sudo -i cd /opt/tomcat
$ pwd

Instead, start an interactive shell as root and run your commands:

$ sudo su -
# cd /opt/tomcat
# ...
# exit
