Unable to get TomcatManager console

HI

I installed Tomcat 5.0.29. when installation it asked for password for admin role and i provided.

Everything is success. Tomcat Has been started.

when i typed http://localhost:8080/ it shown the page . In that page when i clicked the TomcatManager it is giving error like below

[img]HTTP Status 403 - Access to the requested resource has been denied

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

type Status report

message Access to the requested resource has been denied

description Access to the specified resource (Access to the requested resource has been denied) has been forbidden[/img]

it is not even asked me username and password to access the TomcatManager.

I also checked the tomcat-users.xml. The tomcat-users.xml file looks as below..

[img]<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
<tomcat-users>
<role rolename="tomcat"/>
<role rolename="role1"/>
<role rolename="manager"/>
<role rolename="admin"/>
<group groupname="standard" description="standard" roles="admin,manager,role1,tomcat"/>
<user username="tomcat" password="tomcat" roles="tomcat"/>
<user username="both" password="tomcat" roles="tomcat,role1"/>
<user username="role1" password="tomcat" roles="role1"/>
<user username="admin" password="admin" fullName="admin" groups="standard" roles="manager"/>
</tomcat-users>[/img]


In above xml file i have a role called manager and also i have a user with assigned role(manager).

so what's wrong in my configuration. Is any other thing to do , to access TomcatManager. I'm able to access Admin console. Only problem with the TomcatManager console

As I recall, the Manager app is not part of the normal Tomcat 5 download - you have to download and install it separately.

Check for the existance of the manager directory:

(tomcat)\server\webapps\manager

Hi Bill,

I installed the Tomcat 5.0.29. If we installed the tomcat 5.5 then separate admin and manager packages has to be install.

As of i know tomcat 5.0.29 comes with admin and manager packages.

I also checked the (tomcat)\server\webapps\manager . This folder is avaliable in installation folder along with admin too.

Please tell me what went wrong with my configuration.

Thanks in advance.
