After installing Web Viewer, you may need to run the Tomcat manager to confirm a successful Web Application Server (WAS) implementation.
How do I set up and run the Tomcat Manager?
1) Tomcat must be up and running 2) Edit the tomcat-users.xml file which is in the conf directory under the Tomcat directory 3) Remove the comments around the last paragraph with the roles <!-- --> 4) Add at the bottom after the other roles (using your own username and password) <role rolename="manager-gui"/> <user username="tomcat" password="s3cret" roles="manager-gui"/> 5) Save 6) Bring up the Tomcat manager at this location and log in using the userid and password you added to the tomcat-users.xml http://localhost:8080/manager/html and log in 7) You may want to/should undo this after we are done with the Tomcat manager as you will not need it regularly and leaving that section uncommented may get you tagged with a vulnerability.
It bears repeating, you should undo this after we are done with the Tomcat Manager as you will not
need it regularly and leaving that section uncommented may be tagged in a vulnerability scan.
