Subject RE: installing the admin on 5.5
Date Wed, 03 Jan 2007 13:54:28 GMT

Hi, I've read through all of the post material I can find on this topic and
still cannot seem to get the admin app deployed correctly. I have unzipped
the content to the directories as described in this post. When I start
tomcat and try to access the admin application I received the following
Message in the browser: 

"Tomcat's administration web application is no longer installed by default.
Download and install the "admin" package to use it". 

Additionally, I do not see any reference to "admin" in the console log or
when I view the server through the manager. At this point I'm at a bit of a
loss...I don't see what I'm missing here. Is there some other configuration
step that I have missed perhaps?
