Installed Tomcat 5. Works. Downloaded admin separately from apache. Put the admin folder in $CATALINA_HOME/server/webapps. However, when I click on the Tomcat Administration link from the Welcome page, it gives me a message saying, "Download and install the admin separately".

NOte, I simply copied the admin folder over to the above mentioned webapps directory. What am I doing wrong and how do I fix it? I am guessing I need to deploy the .war file for the admin utility but I don't see it anywhere. Basically, what do I need to do to get this Tomcat Administration to work properly.

Thanks in advance.

On my Tomcat 5 installations, the ./server/webapps/admin/WEB-INF/lib directory has 5 jar files including catalina-admin.jar that came in the admin.zip collection.
I didn't have to do anything but unzip, create an admin rolename entry in tomcat-users.xml and add the role to one username.
After restarting, there it was.

OK. I'll check my directory and see what I have this weekend. I'll post the results later. Thanks for your response.
