I am new to this whole app server business and have spent this morning getting everything working. It shouldn't have taken that long, but it did.
My aim was to have some thing running on localhost which I could connect to and click about in. Compressed down in to a couple of steps I needed to do:
- yum install tomcat6 tomcat6-webapps tomcat6-admin-webapps
- edit /etc/tomcat6/tomcat-users.xml
add the line:
<user name="manager" password="tomcat_manager_secret" roles="manager"/>
- service tomcat6 restart
This sounds obvious enough now that I've done it.
