YES

i know i'm supposed to know this.

Installed Tomcat 5.whatnot and was told

Tomcat's administration web application is no longer installed by default. Download and install the "admin" package to use it.


And where would i download that thing?

They had this Hyperlink thing once, invented by Berners-Lee mighty handy and quite impressing. Wouldn't have done any harm here - eh?



Could someone please give me a hint.

Thank you.

J.

This is how u can proceed:
1. Download the admin package from (Thanks to Bala for reference)
http://mirrors.ibiblio.org/pub/mirrors/apache/jakarta/tomcat-5/v5.5.7-alpha/bin/?C=N;O=D
For Linux : jakarta-tomcat-5.5.7-admin.tar.gz
For Windows : jakarta-tomcat-5.5.7-admin.zip

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
