Problem with Admin Tool

Hi All,

I have a strange issue with Tomcat 5.0.30.

I installed it few days back. When I try to use the Admin tool, neither it prompts for password, nor it takes me to the page.

In fact, http://localhost:8080/admin throws a blank page...

Any reason?

Did you define a role where rolename="admin"

AND a user where the roles= list includes "admin"

I agree. Here's the link:
