Thx for the reply.

Yes. As I mentioned in the first email of this thread, I have a file [CATALINA_HOME]/conf/tomcat-users.xml
with the following content:

   <role rolename="manager"/>
   <role rolename="manager-script"/>
   <role rolename="manager-gui"/>
   <user username="admin" password="admin" roles="manager,manager-script,manager-gui"/>

As I mentioned in the first email, when I tried it first with the above tomcat-users.xml file
and no manager.xml file, it didn't work. Server Status worked, Manager opened the page but
couldn't deploy a war file, and Host Manager gave me 403. This happened whether I accessed
the site as http://localhost:8080 or 

So for some reason or other, the default behaviour doesn't seem to work for me.

Note that I am using OSX. 

Could this be due to some sort of proxy issue?

Thx again.
