I have installed Tomcat5.5 in my system. While installing the tomcat i used the administrator username and password as admin, admin. Once i hve started tomcat service authenticated tomcat manager with admin, admin, username and pwd, i checked remember my password option.

Now i hv installed oracle 9i into my system. I wanted to develop a webapplication using JDBC. But now i am unable to login to tomcat. After starting the tomcat service, when ever i open tomcatwelcome page http://localhost:8080 , it is asking username and password. I had given admin , admin but it is not accepting. Asking for username and password again and again. I could not use the tomcat now.

I have uninstalled the tomcat and installed it again, used same username and password as admin but still the same problem i am facing.

I have checked the contents of the file tomcat-users.xml, in conf directory, it shows administrator, manager username and passwords as admin, admin ( as i had given during the installation ). But i could not use tomcat.

Can you please give me a solution to this problem?
Thankyou in advance.
