I download the tomcat5.5.20 zip file and unzip it. when I access localhost:8080, the first page appear, however what is the username and password for status and tomcat manager at the admin panel. The default should be admin for username and blank for password, but it cannot be used here.

Anyone know what is the default username and password?

Thanks.

There is no default username/password.
This is intentional and was done this way for security purposes.
You can set them yourself by editing the tomcat/conf/tomcat-users.xml file.

Thanks for reply.

I change username and tomcat below to "admin", but I still cannot use it to access tomcat manager.

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
<tomcat-users>
<role rolename="tomcat"/>
<role rolename="role1"/>
<user username="tomcat" password="tomcat" roles="tomcat"/>
<user username="both" password="tomcat" roles="tomcat,role1"/>
<user username="role1" password="tomcat" roles="role1"/>
</tomcat-users>


May I know how to modify and set the username and password.

Thanks.

The admin and manager apps are two separate things.
Here's a snapshot of a tomcat-users.xml file that works.


Obviously, you'll want to replace the username and password (in caps).

I'm having the same problem, but this did not work for me. I get invaled username or password. I'm using netbeans 5.0 if this makes a difference.
Thank you

Michael,
Try starting a new thread in the IDEs forum.
If that config file doesn't work in your Tomcat install, then maybe Netbeans has altered it's embedded version of Tomcat.

In Tomcat 7, 8, and 9 there is NO default user, so nobody can access a Manager app.
You need to alter conf/tomcat-users.xml by adding new user with the role "manager-gui", like:
