Hello everyone,

I configured Tomcat 7.0.6 and could not open the manager\html to manage my applications.
My conf\tomcat-users.xml has been modified to the following
The username and password i am using is admin & admin

<role rolename="tomcat"/>
<role rolename="role1"/>
<user username="tomcat" password="tomcat" roles="tomcat"/>
<user username="both" password="tomcat" roles="tomcat,role1"/>
<user username="role1" password="tomcat" roles="role1"/>
<role rolename="manager-gui"/>
<user username="admin" password="admin" roles="manager-gui,tomcat,role1"/>


With Regards & Thanks

What response did you get? After you changed your tomcat-users.xml file, did you restart Tomcat?

Yes, I restarted the tomcat service. IT completely did not accepted the user name and password and showed the same modal window to enter user name and password.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
