Hi Everybody,
I am using Tomcat 5.5.When I Clicked Tomcat Manager in Tomcat's homepage ie., http://localhost:8080/, it shows HTTP Status 404 - /manager/html. Previously it worked fine. The username and password for tomcat manager is present in tomcat-users.xml file.

Please help.

Regards
Bhuvana

Have you deleted something under

$APACHE_HOME/server/webapps ??

the manager application is installed under that path, if you removed it, then you will not be able to use it again (the application wont exist).

Also, make sure that the user that starts TOMCAT has permitions to read on that directory.

Hi,
Thanks for Your Reply.

The Webapps folder has 2 directories 1.host-manager
2. manager
I have no idea about the files that present in these directories.Could you please tell me about the important files in those directories?

Thank you.

In my copy of Tomcat the ../server/webapps/manager directory looks like a typical web application with a WEB-INF/lib containing catalina-manager.jar and commons-fileupload-1.0.jar

You say "previously it worked fine" - what was changed in your system?

Anything show up in the logs? How are you starting Tomcat?

Hi,
Thanks for your reply.

When i clicked Tomcat Manager, it prompts for username and password.
Exactly I don't know what had happened.Now, it says HTTP 404 error.
Status, Tomcat Administration, Tomcat Manager are not working.When i
clicked Status, it shows HTTP 404 Error. But in Tomcat Administration
it shows
Tomcat's administration web application is no longer installed by
default. Download and install the "admin" package to use it.


When i click rest of the links, it works fine. Could you please tell
how to check the log?

Please Help.

Regards,
Ranjani

1. Did you in fact download and install the Admin package?
2. Tomcat writes text log files to the TOMCAT_HOME/logs directory.

HI Bhuvana,

You probably missing something in your tomcat/webapps directory.

It should contain the following directories along with your project wars.

examples
host-manager
manager
ROOT
docs etc.

Probably you are missing the ROOT/index.html and may be host managerand(or) manager directories.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
