Subject manager.xml: cannot configure SSL for form-based authentication
Date Mon, 13 Oct 2003 13:24:04 GMT
Sorry if this comes through twice. I think it got eaten by my email 
software the first time.

I have tried putting the following in
$CATALINA_HOME/server/webapps/manager/WEB-INF/web.xml but the SSL config 
is ignored:

       <web-resource-name>SSL 4 Login</web-resource-name>
       <description>SSL required</description>


I have the login & error pages in $CATALINA_HOME/server/webapps/manager/

Basically it always stays in non-SSL protocol.

I posted this in bugzilla, being confident that tomcat was not doing 
what it was supposed to, but apparently it is. I got the following 
solution via bugzilla, but I don't understand it! How is this telling me 
I should configure SSL for the manager login?
