    Default suse 11 + tomcat 6 cant run web manager

    i am trying to learn Tomcat and use the Manager web application;

    http://localhost/manager/html

    but i cant seem to get the Manager web application to authenticate me. any ideas?

    a. i installed everything from yast that said tomcat and sounded realevant.

    b. firewall is off and i can access http://<my static ip>:8080/ from other machines on my network.

    c. i edited the tomcat-users.xml file and set...

    <role rolename="admin"/>
    <role rolename="manager"/>
    <user username="tomcat" password="s3cret" roles="manager,tomcat,admin"/>

    hello, yesterday I installed the program without problems in opensuse 11.0. What I did was as follows:

    - Open yast and install tomcat6, tomcat6-admin-webapps and tomcat6-webapps
    - Add "manager" role and "admin" user (with the "manager" role) to /etc/tomcat6/tomcat-users.xml. At first didn't work, but then I realized I had to remove the comments in the file (!)
    - Restart tomcat (tomcat6 restart) and now works like a charm

    oh my gosh that is so annoying!!!!
    thank you very much for your response
    that did the trick, cant believe i missed that

    you know, there should be an "easy route" or "basic route" how-to tutorial for tomcat in addition to the one at..

    Tomcat HOWTO - openSUSE

    would have saved me some hours of frustration

    Easy? That word is incompatible with Java.
