It didn't make the docs in the last-minute rush, but there are two things you need

* In "$TOMCAT_HOME/conf/server.xml", change the
  entry for the administration application so that it says


* Create one or more users who have a role "admin"
  assigned to them.  (The username and password
  do not matter).  For the default realm, that means
  editing file $TOMCAT_HOME/conf/tomcat-users.xml
  and restarting Tomcat.

We didn't want people unknowingly exposing their servers to remote attack, so the
