I created a tomcat6 instance using the tomcat6-instance-create command from the tomcat6-user package. However, there are no webapps by default, and I want to add the "manager" webapp to this instance. For the system-wide tomcat6, this would be installed by installing the tomcat6-admin package. Is there any way to do this in Ubuntu 10.04?

Looks like it installs the manager webapp into the directory:


I would expect you need to install the tomcat6-admin package first.

I have tomcat6-admin installed ... makes no difference. – lrkwz Dec 5 '12 at 16:48

What I ended up doing was just downloading the tomcat6 tarball, and copying the "manager" webapp to my own tomboy instance. But it seems like there must be a better way...
