I add user with role manager into CATALINA_HOME\conf\tomcat-users.xml

But if I put http://localhost:8080/manager/html into browser then it appears :

HTTP Status 403 - Access to the requested resource has been denied

Could anybody give me a piece of advice, please?

Can you post your tomcat-users.xml file?

Also, have you restarted Tomcat since you made the changes to that file?
