Subject RE: Remote deployments in Tomcat 5.5.9
Date Wed, 26 Oct 2005 13:01:13 GMT

I am using TC 5.5.9 on WinXP Pro here, but AFAIK the config is the same on

Your remote server needs to have the manager webapp installed and enabled.
It is installed in TC as standard (at least it is in 5.5.9, which I am
using).  However it ships disabled for security reasons so before the
manager webapp works, you need to create a user in conf\tomcat-users.xml
which has the manager role.  You also need to make sure that there is a
realm configured in server.xml to read tomcat-user.xml - again this is
configured in the standard install.  without this, the manager webapp will
not run.

//example content of conf/tomcat-users.xml
  <role rolename="manager" />
  <user username="joebloggs" password="secret" roles="manager" />

Once you have done that, you can access the webapp through the URI
"/manager/html/", and remote client PCs with the joebloggs/secret
credentials should be able to deploy webapps on the server.
