Apache tomcat manger role

hey guys,

need some help sorting out this manager role. When i go to the localhost page the it tells me that everytihg is fine and tomcat was successfully setup.

When i click the link n the left for Tomcat manager i get asked for a username and password. I don't know how to set this up.

In my tomcat-users.xml i have the following:

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
<role rolename="tomcat"/>
<role rolename="role1"/>
<role rolename="manager"/>
<role rolename="admin"/>
<user username="tomcat" password="tomcat" roles="tomcat"/>
<user username="both" password="tomcat" roles="tomcat,role1"/>
<user username="role1" password="tomcat" roles="role1"/>
<user username="admin" password="" roles="admin,manager"/>

but none of the usernames/passwords work.

In service.xml a section of the code says the following:

<!-- Editable user database that can also be used by
UserDatabaseRealm to authenticate users
<Resource name="UserDatabase" auth="Container"
description="User database that can be updated and saved"
pathname="conf/tomcat-users.xml" />

so it seems to be looking in the right place.

Has anyone any ideas what i need to do to get access?

Thanks for any help

As per your tomcat-users.xml, for tomcat manager and admin the userid is admin and no password. Try this and see if it works else edit the last line of the file as below

<user username="admin" password="admin" roles="admin,manager"/>

restart the tomcat and try with admin/admin. It should work.

Hope this helps you.
