Subject tomcat 7 Manager access
Date Mon, 24 Mar 2014 19:30:17 GMT

When I try to navigate to the any of the Manager links from the first page, I get a login
popup. I have tried all of the usernames in the tomcat-users.xml and all I get back is a fresh
login popup.  It looks like there is a bug in the org.apache.tomcat.util.digester.Digester
for 7.0.52 which is stopping the Memory User Database Realm from loading.  Before I unjar
the tomcat-util.jar file.  Is there something that I am doing wrong?
Thanks in advance,

Tomcat 7.0.52  port 8181.

Java 7 u51
