Subject Can't authenticate to admin, tried everything
Date Sun, 30 Apr 2006 04:08:58 GMT
I have tomcat 5.5.17 and I recently downloaded the admin web app. I 
can't seem to find a way to authenticate to it. I have an existing 
JDBCRealm that works fine with the manager web app, using digested 
passwords. I added a user with a non-digested password, since admin uses 
FORM authentication, but I still get authenticate failures.

Below is what I have for server\webapps\admin\WEB-INF\web.xml (just the 
relevant portion, where teh security constraints are defined). I just 
modified the realm name to point to the aforementioned JDBCRealm. I have 
a user registered there with non-digested password whose role is admin, 
but I still get authentication failures  when I try to access admin. I 
also tried configuring the UserDatabaseRealm using 
conf\tomcat-users.xml, just to get another data point, and that didn't 
work either. Anyone know what I'm missing??
