Hi,
When I enter the login an password (tomcat/tomcat)in the admin console of tomcat, I get the error :
1> HTTP Status 403 - Access to the requested resource has been denied

When I try again(on the same browser window), I get the error:

2> HTTP Status 404 - /admin/j_security_check

When I close the window and open a new browser, I get 403 error.

Question:
1> Please help me in solving the problem and help me to login into the admin console (more important).
2> Why does the status change?

Note:
I am using tomcat 4.1.31
I verified the tomcat-users.xml has the right values.

Why are you using such an outdated version of Tomcat?


I verified the tomcat-users.xml has the right values.

Saying that a config file has the right values doen't help much in a forum.
If the file is small (which tomcat-users.xml is) post the contents of the file. Change the username and/or password if you're concerned about posting them but let folks see how you've configured things.

a> Hi Beth, I am working on 2 versions of tomcat:
1> Primary: apache-tomcat-5.5.17
2> tomcat 4.1.31
Just to see the differences between the 2 versions.

b> Yes, I just wanted to mention that I am using tomcat/tomcat as username/password.

c> Is there any other forum where such basic questions are asked? Because I found that the questions asked over here are regarding advanced concepts like : How to configure a particular plug-in.... etc .

d> Thanks for the tips which help me in getting answers to my questions.

Is it working as expected in version 5.5?

If there is a mistake in your config file, nobody here can see it.
My point was that it's easier to post the contents of the config file (and much more useful) than to just say "It's correct".

This forum is open to any and all questions regarding ApacheTomcat.
No questions are too basic.
Ask anything you like.
