The Tomcat Web Application Manager

PoolParty comes with the Tomcat Web Application Manager installed.

Using the Tomcat Manager Application you can do the following:

  • check if all your applications are started
  • stop and start applications
  • undeploy applications

Accessing the Tomcat Manager application requires authentication. A user named 'admin' is created during PoolParty installation that allows you to access the Tomcat Manager application.

Credentials for this user are available in the tomcat-users.xml file that can be found here:

  • Linux: /opt/poolparty/tomcat/conf/
  • Windows: C:/Programs/Apache Software Foundation/Tomcat 7/conf

You can access the tomcat manager application by calling the following URL:

  • http://<server>/manager/html
