Re: Getting the Manager app running on localhost.. Please help

2018-07-13 Thread Désilets , Alain
Thx everyone for the great replies.

I decided to take Konstantin Kolinko's advice and start a new installation from 
scratch using tomcat-8.5.32.

I have had some success, but still can't deploy WARS.

Here is what I did:

== Step 1: Installing Tomcat per se ==
I used the instructions on this page:

https://wolfpaulus.com/mac/tomcat/

* Download the zip file and unzip it on your HD under 
/usr/local/apache-tomcat-N.N.N (where N.N.N is the version number).
** Note: In the rest of this document, that directory will be referred to 
[CATALINA_HOME].
* Create a symlink /Library/Tomcat to make managing future versions easier:
sudo rm -f /Library/Tomcat
sudo ln -s [CATALINA_HOME] /Library/Tomcat
* Change ownership of /Library/Tomcat
sudo chown -R  /Library/Tomcat
* Make all scripts executable
sudo chmod +x /Library/Tomcat/bin/*.sh
* Now, I can start/stop tomcat as follows:
/Library/Tomcat/bin/startup.sh
/Library/Tomcat/bin/shutdown.sh
** IMPORTANT: DON’T RUN THOSE SCRIPTS WITH SUDO!!! 
 Especially ‘startup.sh’, as this will end up creating a bunch of temporay 
dirs and files that will be owned by ROOT, and cannot be written unless you 
start Tomcat as ROOT.
* Test the installation by:
** Starting Tomcat with startup.sh
** Pointing my browser at http://localhost:8080/.
** I see the Tomcat home page no problem

== Step 2: Configuring the Tomcat Manager Apps ==

* Edit the file /Library/Tomcat/conf/tomcat-users.xml, and add the following 
lines inside the  tag pair:





* Shutdown and re-start Tomcat
* At this point, I can click on any of the following buttons: 'Server Status', 
'Manager' App, 'Host Manager' and once I enter the user and passwords I 
specified in , I get to see the corresponding page.
** On 'Manager App', I was able to start, stop, re-deploy EXISTING apps.
** BUT
*** When I tried to deploy a new WAR file, I got:

This site can’t be reached
The connection was reset.
Try:

Checking the connection
Checking the proxy and the firewall
ERR_CONNECTION_RESET

After a bit of reading, it seems that this is because the WAR file I was 
deploying was larger than the maximum size allowed. I fixed that by editing 
/Library/Tomcat/webapps/manager/WEB-INF/web.xml, and changing the size in the 
following tags:


5000 
5000 
0


And now, all seem to work fine.

Again, thanks to everyone who pitched in with some advice. It was really 
helpful.

Note that such an addition must be done outside of the sample role/user
elements, since they are commented out.  A common error is failing to remove
or otherwise avoid the comment markers.

FYI, I'm on MacOS (Sierra 10.12.6). I just now

1) installed apache-tomcat-8.5.32
2) added these two lines to tomcat-users.xml

  
  

3) started tomcat (`bin/catalina.sh run`)
4) open browser to http://localhost:8080/manager/html
5) supplied above credentials
6) uploaded a war file which deployed correctly

I'm not sure why you created a context file, but it seems extraneous...

To use host-manager you need admin-gui as the role.

See
https://wiki.apache.org/tomcat/FAQ/Troubleshooting_and_Diagnostics#Common_Troubleshooting_Scenario

"localhost" name never resolves to "132."something.


> /usr/local/apache-tomcat-8.5.4/bin

Why 8.5.4??? Why not the current release (8.5.32)?

See
http://tomcat.apache.org/security-8.html


> sudo sh startup.sh;

Do not run Tomcat as root!

See
http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-8.5-doc/security-howto.html

Delete all temporary files (in the logs, temp and work directories of
Tomcat) that might now be owned by root and not writable by a regular
user and start over. Note that deploying / undeploying a web
application via Manager requires write access to the webapps, work and
maybe conf directories for the user running Tomcat java process.

The Manager app in Tomcat 8.5 does not use the "manager" role.  The
last time it was used was Tomcat 6. Are you sure that you are
following a correct manual?

The "manager-script" role should be used by automated scripts only.
Granting "manager-script" and "manager-gui" to the same user means
that CSRF protection (in the Manager web application) for that user
will be ineffective.

Konstantin Kolinko

Yes. As I mentioned in the first email of this thread, I have a file 
[CATALINA_HOME]/conf/tomcat-users.xml with the following content:

   
   
   
   

>By default, it can only run on localhost, and it's configured to listen to

As I mentioned in the first email, when I tried it first with the above 
tomcat-users.xml file and no manager.xml file, it didn't work. Server Status 
worked, Manager opened the page but couldn't deploy a war file, and Host 
Manager gave me 403. This happened whether I accessed the site as 
http://localhost:8080 or http://127.0.0.1:8080. 

So for some reason or other, the default behaviour doesn't seem to work for me.

Note that I am using OSX. 

Could this be due to some sort of proxy issue?

Thx again.

Re: Getting the Manager app running on localhost.. Please help

2018-07-12 Thread M. Manna
have you enabled all user roles with passwords?

in CATALINA_HOME/conf/tomcat-users.xml file? Also, don't forget to change
the passwords noted as "" with something "interesting".

By default, it can only run on localhost, and it's configured to listen to
127.0.0.1 via the valve. If you uncomment the user role part and change the
password, you should be able to log in. i was able to start it by doing
above.

Also, when you get 403, pay attention to what user roles you need to have
for certain pages to be visible on localhost.

I should be more precise…

When I try with “^.*$”, I get same behavior as when I didn’t have a manager.xml 
file, ie:

  *   Server Status: works
  *   Manager: opens page but deploying war causes ‘This site can’t be reached’
  *   Host Manager: ‘403 Access Denied’

And by “132.0.0.0.”, I actually meant “127.0.0.1”. When I try that from 
‘localhost:8080’, all buttons result in ‘403 Access Denied’. But when I access 
the buttons from “127.0.0.1:8080”, I get the same behavior as above

Getting the Manager app running on localhost.. Please help

2018-07-12 Thread Désilets , Alain
I have been trying to get my local Tomcat installation to allow me to deploy 
apps from the local machine and nothing I do seems to help.

At the moment, I have a file [CATALINA_HOME]/conf/tomcat-users.xml with the 
following content:

   
   
   
   

When I go to http://localhost:8080/ and click on the various apps buttons I get 
the following outcomes:


  *   Server Status: Opens the ‘Server Status’ page
  *   Manager App: Opens the ‘Tomcat Web Application Manager’ page. But if I 
try to deploy a war file, I get “This site can’t be reached”.
  *   Host Manager: I get ‘403 Access Denied’ with a long series of 
explanations about roles, context.xml and tomcat-users.xml.

Reading the instructions, it sounds like I got the tomcat-users.xml part right 
(see the content above). Correct?

So now I go about creating the context file for the Manager app. I create a 
file:

   [CATALINA_HOME]/ conf/Catalina/localhost/manager.xml

With the following content:
