Tomcat Unable to Enter Manager App
I know similar questions have been asked before but I couldn't find a situation that people were running into that was the same as mine.
Currently my tomcat-users.xml is as follows:
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?> <tomcat-users> <user name="tomcat" password="tomcat" role="standard,manager"></user> </tomcat-users>
However when I select Manager App instead of asking me for a username and password I am immediately directed to the error 403 page.
I have been programming in java for a long time however this is really new to me. If you are able to help out that would be amazing.
Thanks so much.
I think you should change the name attribute with username.
Having such an insecure password is extremely dangerous. You need to switch a a strong password immediately.
Users need the manager-gui role to access the HTML interface of the Manager application.
The text on the 403 error page explains all the requirements.
