Subject tomcat5.5 and ubuntu hardy heron
Date Fri, 19 Sep 2008 16:09:23 GMT

I've installed tomcat 5.5 on ubuntu hardy heron. If I go to localhost:8180 I
get the welcome screen. I can then click on "Tomcat Administration" on the
left and go to the admin page and get in using the default user/password.
However if I click on "Tomcat Manager" I get:

HTTP Status 403 - Access to the requested resource has been denied
type Status report
message Access to the requested resource has been denied
description Access to the specified resource (Access to the requested
resource has been denied) has been forbidden.
Apache Tomcat/5.5

I have also added these to lines to /etc/tomcat5.5/tomcat-users.xml:

  <role rolename="manager" description="this is the manager"/>
  <user username="bob" password="tomcat" fullName="bob" roles="manager"/>

In usr/share/tomcat5.5-webapps I don't see a manager subdirectory. I
installed tomcat5.5 with the synaptic package manager. Why can't I get to a
manager web page?

A second question. I copied the sample.war file into
usr/share/tomcat5.5-webapps. I read that if I go to localhost:8180/sample
that sample.war would be unpacked, but it is not. I get "HTTP Status 404 -
/sample". I did restart tomcat and apache2. What am I doing wrong?
