Is there or what is the default administrator user and password for Tomcat?
Posted by Quote Lin on 03 November 2013 10:36 PM

Tomcat will have different roles for specific access right. It defines the following roles:

manager-gui - allows access to the HTML GUI and the status pages

manager-script - allows access to the text interface and the status pages

manager-jmx - allows access to the JMX proxy and the status pages

manager-status - allows access to the status pages only

 

By default, Tomcat does not enable admin or manager access. To enable it, you have to edit the “%TOMCAT_FOLDER%/conf/tomcat-users.xml” manually.

 

In ASUSTOR NAS:

1. Please login into ssh, and modify the /usr/local/AppCentral/tomcat/conf/tomcat-users.xml

2. Go to ADM App Central to disable/enable tomcat

3. Try to login with new admin account, and password

( In the below example, admin's account is tomcat, password is admin)

 

File : tomcat-users.xml (before update) , initially, Tomcat comments all users and roles like above.

 

==modified  tomcat-users.xml  : administrator's account/password will be tomcat/admin

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>

<tomcat-users>

<!--

  <role rolename="tomcat"/>

  <role rolename="role1"/>

  <user username="tomcat" password="tomcat" roles="tomcat"/>

  <user username="both" password="tomcat" roles="tomcat,role1"/>

  <user username="role1" password="tomcat" roles="role1"/>

-->

</tomcat-users>

File : tomcat-users.xml (after updated)

 

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>

<tomcat-users>

<!--

  <role rolename="tomcat"/>

  <role rolename="role1"/>

  <user username="tomcat" password="tomcat" roles="tomcat"/>

  <user username="both" password="tomcat" roles="tomcat,role1"/>

  <user username="role1" password="tomcat" roles="role1"/>

-->

 <role rolename="admin-gui"/>

 <role rolename="admin-script"/>

 <role rolename="manager-gui"/>

 <role rolename="manager-script"/>

 <role rolename="manager-jmx"/>

 <role rolename="manager-status"/>

 <user username="tomcat" password="admin" roles="manager-gui,manager-script,manager-jmx,manager-status,admin-script,admin-gui"/>

 </tomcat-users>
