Tomcat Console & Manager App Error - Two Items

Hi,

I have Apache Tomcat/7.0.5.

1) When I tried to access the Manager App in Tomcat I received the dreaded "403 Access Denied You are not authorized to view this page." message. I checked my conf/tomcat-users.xml, code is below my signature, according to the instructions making sure the users and roles were not commented out, but still I get the message even after restarting Tomcat and then the pc.

2) I'm trying to view the Tomcat console. Is the Manager App the correct place to do it once I get in there?

Your help with either or both of these issues would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Lou

Now try defining and turning on the roles that control access to the manager and admin apps

<role rolename="manager"/>
<role rolename="admin"/>

Hi Bill,

I tried your suggestion, still get the same result.

The red lines are what I added.

<role rolename="manager"/>
<role rolename="admin"/>
<role rolename="tomcat"/>
<role rolename="role1"/>
<user username="tomcat" password="tomcat" roles="tomcat"/>
<user username="both" password="tomcat" roles="tomcat,role1"/>
<user username="role1" password="tomcat" roles="role1"/>
<user username="manager" password="manager" roles="manager"/>
<user username="admin" password="admin" roles="admin"/>


I clicked on manger webapp and tried loggin in with user=mannager, password=manager. Still get 403 Access Denied
You are not authorized to view this page.



Also I noticed the first line is
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='cp1252'?>
but should it be
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>

like other examples I've see to use utf-8 encoding?

Thanks,

Lou
