the loads fine. But after entering credentials nothing happens. I have a admin role and user and password is setup in the tomcat-users-xml. Server.xml points to conf/tomcat-users.xml.

Apache doesn't show any error either. It shows a POST 200 after I press enter but nothing happens. Any idea how to troubleshoot this? I tried restarting the services.

I don't see any errors in catalina.out just this when I click the button.

tomcat-users.xml has the following:

And server.xml has the following:
