Tomcat works fine and I can deploy web apps, but when I try to access the admin console, It says unrecognized username or password. I tried adding manager role in the conf tomcat-user.xml, any ideas.

Since this is about the Tomcat console, I'm moving it to our Tomcat forum.

The manager role is for the manager. What do you mean by 'console'? And can you post your tomcat-users.xml? Maybe it's a simple typo?

Did you see this thread:

In it there is copy of a working tomcat-users.xml file

My user file is just like the one in the previous thread. View admin console page.

Perhaps your copy of Tomcat is configured to use another source of user names? Look in the server.xml configuration file for entries containing the word "UserDatabase".

You need to modify the tomcat-users.xml file in the users' Tomcat base dir,


, not the one in IDE installation dir.

C:\Program Files\netbeans-5.0\enterprise2\jakarta-tomcat-5.5.9\conf

e.g. edit this:

C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\.netbeans\5.0\jakarta-tomcat-5.5.9_base\conf\tomcat-users.xml
I agree. Here's the link:
