Hi ranchers,

I am fresh in JSP and now face a simple truble. I intend to use the URL http://localhost:8080/manager/html to login manager. I used the userID and password which I set during installation, but I failed to login. The version of Tomcat is 5.0.28 . Could any body give me the solution?

I solved it. Maybe there is requirement about the length of userID or password.

Check in conf/tomcat-users.xml to see what login/password is in the manager role.
