Subject Re: How to set the admin console for 5.5.x
Date Tue, 29 Nov 2005 04:18:19 GMT
Hi Dhaval,

I found the reason why it was not working! When we install Tomcat 5.5.X,
there is a folder by name "*admin*" under $CATALINA_HOME/webapps/ROOT/.
While experimenting, I had removed this folder. Hence, I reinstalled Tomcat,
then did the following steps to get the admin console working:
a. Installed Tomcat 5.5.12
b. Placed "admin" folder from the "apache-tomcat-5.5.12-admin.zip" under:
*$CATALINA_HOME\server\webapps*
c. Placed the "admin.xml" file under:
*$CATALINA_HOME\conf\Catalina\localhost*
d. Made sure there is a user by name "admin" in the "tomcat-users.xml" file
with following details:
*<user username="admin" password="admin" roles="admin,manager"/>*
I had followed all these steps, except that the "admin" folder under ROOT
was missing! Since, this is not documented in Tomcat documents, thought of
sharing the exact steps.

Thanks much for the responses.

Regards,
Shridhar
