I Can't get Tomcat 5.5. Admin App to work, I got it from jakarta web site but seems like the zip file I am getting is incomplete. After unziping the file into the webapp folder and restarting, Tomcat can't find the login.jsp page.
Hi Jose, I am looking for this solution as well. I tried to deploy the 'admin' but Tomcat didn't picked it up properly. I'll get back to this thread once I have a working solution with me. Maybe I'll try to build the Tomcat from source and see how it goes.

Hi Jose, Finally I was able to setup the Admin web app successfully.
2. In my case it is Linux, copy the file anywhere u like & do the following: # guzip -d jakarta-tomcat-5.5.7-admin.tar.gz # tar xvf jakarta-tomcat-5.5.7-admin.tar this will leave you with a directory having name 'jakarta-tomcat-5.5.7'
3. cd into jakarta-tomcat-5.5.7 in there you will find 2 directories 'conf' & 'server' cd /server/webapps cp -R admin/ /<path-to-your-catalina>/server/webapps This copies the folder 'admin' into your catalina
3. Now cd into the 'conf' folder cd /conf/Catalina/localhost cp admin.xml /<path-to-your-catalina>/conf/Catalina/localhost This copies the admin.xml within 'conf' folder
4. Restart the Jakarta Tomcat service and thats it...
For Windows: 1. Simply unzip the file jakarta-tomcat-5.5.7-admin.zip 2. copy the folder 'admin' from jakarta-tomcat-5.5.7\server\webapps\admin into your <tomcat-folder>\server\webapps 3. copy the file admin.xml from jakarta-tomcat-5.5.7\conf\Catalina\localhost into your <tomcat-folder>\conf\Catalina\localhost 4. Restart Tomcat
Hi Rahul i did the same thing as mentioned by you, but still when i try this link http://localhost:8080/admin/ it gives me the following error. Servlet admin.login_jsp is currently unavailable description The requested service (Servlet admin.login_jsp is currently unavailable) is not currently available Any reason? Thanks Rashid
