Subject Newbie question. /manager only gives the directory listing
Date Sun, 18 Sep 2005 23:56:03 GMT
Hi all,

I have been using Tomcat for some time now, but I still feel like a newbie in
most regards. At least when it comes to configuring it.
Tomcat has been working great, together with Apache 2, for several months now.
But now, I find myself wanting to use the manager webapp for the first time.
But it doesn't work. When I try to go to /manager all I get from Tomcat is the
directory listing of the manager-folder. I know this request is handled
by Tomcat, because I have the required JKMount's in the Apache httpd.conf file,
and at the bottom of the directory listing it says "Apache Tomcat/5.5.9".

I have checked the archive for this maining list, and I have checked the
documentation and searched on google, but I can't find any information on how
to set up the default manager. All they say is that it is installed by default.
And I'm sure that it worked at the beginning, but then I must have made
something that messed it up, but since I haven't used it at all I have no idea
when, how
and why it got messed up.

Is there a simply "checklist" that I can go through step by step, to check that
my configuration is as it should be? Or maybe some kind soul could take a look
at my configuration files and figure out what I'm doing wrong?

Some info on my system:
Windows XP
Apache 2.0.54 (as service)
Apache Tomcat 5.5.9 (as service)
docBase changed so that my only webapp (located at c:\community) is reached when
i type localhost:8080/ (se context.xml in configuration files below)
the manager webapp is untouched, in Tomcat5.5\server\webapps\manager

The configuration files can be found at:

The community folder is located under c:\
The httpd.conf is from the apache conf folder.
All other files are from the Tomcat5.5\conf folder

Anyone who can help me with this?
