Hi,

I get a 403 when I try to login to the Tomcat Manager app on Tomcat 5.5. I have taken the following steps.

1. Install the actual application
2. Added TOMCAT5_SECURITY=no to the startup script (this is a testing environment)
2. Changed tomcat-users.xml to create a user with the manager role.
3. changed admin.xml by uncommenting the following line:



I am out of options. Do you have any idea why I can't login to the Tomcat Manager? The tomcat default page works...

This is my tomcat-users.xml file




THANKS for your help

the code above should go to manager.xml, not admin.xml. Anyway check content of manager.xml file
