Please i was trying to log in to Manager App from Apache Tomcat/7.0.40 but is promting error, i was told i have to edit tomcat-user.xml while i have edited it but it still prompting an error.
This the way i edited it :
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
<user username="tomcat" password="tomcat" roles="tomcat"/>
<user username="role1" password="tomcat" roles="role1"/>
<user username="both" password="tomcat" roles="tomcat,role1"/>
My username is Ademola and my password is m@onda,
below is the error message:
ou are not authorized to view this page. If you have not changed any configuration files, please examine the file conf/tomcat-users.xml in your installation. That file must contain the credentials to let you use this webapp.
For example, to add the manager-gui role to a user named tomcat with a password of s3cret, add the following to the config file listed above.
Note that for Tomcat 7 onwards, the roles required to use the manager application were changed from the single manager role to the following four roles. You will need to assign the role(s) required for the functionality you wish to access.
manager-gui - allows access to the HTML GUI and the status pages
manager-script - allows access to the text interface and the status pages
manager-jmx - allows access to the JMX proxy and the status pages
manager-status - allows access to the status pages only
The HTML interface is protected against CSRF but the text and JMX interfaces are not. To maintain the CSRF protection:
Users with the manager-gui role should not be granted either the manager-script or manager-jmx roles.
If the text or jmx interfaces are accessed through a browser (e.g. for testing since these interfaces are intended for tools not humans) then the browser must be closed afterwards to terminate the session.
Is not working, before i install tomcat i spent 4 day's, now to deploy my application via it is given me prob is there any other setup i need to do, did i suppose to edit the localhost:8080 to localhost:80 before it can work? is like just these tomcat-users.xml need to be edited very well
