Tomcat Password in Netbeans

I have Netbeans 5.5 with integrated Tomcat server. I needed to get into the admin console, but I didn't have the right password. So I uninstalled netbeans, downloaded it again, and reinstalled it. However, it still won't accept my password. I thought netbeans would give me a fresh copy of tomcat, but apparently not, due to the error messages I'm getting when I start the Tomcat server. Anybody know what the problem is? Thanks, Niels

OK, I've solved my own problem. First of all, the netbeans uninstall when completed tells you that the uninstall was only partial. To complete the uninstall, you have to move things to the recycle bin. Secondly, the passwords can be found in .netbeans\5.5\apache-tomcat-5.5.17_base\conf\tomcat-users.xml, per the netbeans help files. Hope I didn't waste anyone's time. Best wishes, Niels.
I agree. Here's the link:
