I'm trying to deploy a simple hello world webapp to tomcat
through netbeans. I'm running ubuntu 8.x. I'm getting the following

Deployment error:
Access to Tomcat server has not been authorized. Set the correct username and password with the "manager" role in the Tomcat customizer in the Server Manager. When I googled this, it seemed that I need to create a user
in the tomcat-users.xml file. I've done this and it is pasted below:
<user username="jjgrego" password="copycat" roles="manager,admin"/>

However, I've bounced the server and it still shows the error. Does
anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?

Have you tried without netbeans?

netbeans has its own, internal tomcat. Are you talking to it? or another tomcat running alone? or a tomcat glued to Apache?

Or all three at once?
I agree. Here's the link:
