Subject Re: Manager Application (Tomcat 5.5.26)
Date Mon, 19 May 2008 18:40:37 GMT
The manager webapp provided by tomcat doesn't need installation -- it's 
a part of tomcat already in the download distribution.  It's location 
has changed slightly over time -- normally found in the webapps 
directory, tomcat 5.5.x put it in server/webapps by default.  Regarding 
the error below, there must have been a previous error in the logs from 
when you started tomcat.  Could you look at that and post if necessary?

but this mostly relates to RPM installs or 3rd party software but I am using the source distribution
from the official site... however I did try to unpack the source again and overwrite the manager
application (still have the problem though).
