I have been having a strange problem with Tomcat 4.1.24. I am trying to deploy a new application using the Tomcat Manager deploy command.
I tried the following command:
and it gives me an error:
FAIL - Unkown command /deploy
Does anyone have an idea how to solve this problem.

I think they did a major change to the way manager is invoked it 4.1.24 - try getting into "Tomcat Manager" from the Tomcat startup page. You will have to configure security for the manager role.

Hi Bill,
I did create a new user for the role of the manager and am also going through the Tomcat Manager link in the starting page. But doesnt seem to have something to deploy an application and when I try the DEPLOY command I get that strange error.
Any ideas!!!
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
