Subject Manager App in Tomcat 4.0.1 through mod_webapp
Date Fri, 09 Nov 2001 16:17:31 GMT

I am using Tomcat 4.0.1 and Apache 1.3.22 on Solaris 8.
I am using mod_webapp (compiled from source) that was in the source
directory for Tomcat 4.0.

I can't get the manager app for tomcat 4 to work through apache with
Anyone got any ideas? Is it meant to work?

The Manager App works when accessed via tomcat directly. My other
WebAppDeploy lines work correctly. The http://webhost/tomcat/manager/
prompts me for BASIC auth which I provide and it works (the account has
the role of manager), it's just when I try to do something like
http://webhost/tomcat/manager/list that I get the java error message as
below (edited):
