Hi all,

I am trying to install Tomcat5.5 on my computer(windows vista). I installed the Windows Service Installer under the Core(which was under the Binary Distribution).

In the start menu I see the apache tomcat 5.5 and when I click on the monitor Tomcat it says "Access denied".

Can somebody help me with the installation I dont know what is wrong or if it works differently for windows vista. Any kind of help is appreciated.

Thanks,
Yash

Hi Yash,

There are no different setting or versions available for tomcat in vista or xp. I am using vista business & having tomcat 5.5 installed on my machine. Kindly check with your administrator that you are having enough rights/privileges/permissions available to your windows user account or not, if not then ask for it.........

Cheers!!!

Hello all,

Can somebody PLEASE help me? !?! I am running Tomcat 5.5.27 on Windows Vista and am in hell.

I have copied files to an admin directory under webapps. admin.xml is under conf\Catalina\localhost and I have uncommented out the Valve to allow only localhost access.

When I go to localhost:8080 and click on admin I just get 404 Requested resource is not available.

Here is the contents of the admin directory under webapps.

C:\Tomcat5.5\webapps\admin\admin.css
C:\Tomcat5.5\webapps\admin\admin.xml

C:\Tomcat5.5\webapps\admin\WEB-INF\lib\struts.jar

When I view localhost:8080/manager/html, the admin application does not show a display name.

What else do I need to do? I even tried packaging these files as a war but Tomcat will not deploy it. The Pro Jakarta Tomcat 5 book is useless.

I am at my wit's end. Please help!


I did find this old thread:
http://www.coderanch.com/t/85162/Tomcat/Tomcat-Admin-Application

But I am not getting this error, I am specifically getting a 404 error, resource not available.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
