I have Linux server with one Tomcat-6 installation and many hosts. All hosts are configured in /etc/tomcat/server.xml , each host points to different folder and webapps folder. Is there any way to give access to each hosts owner to deploy/redeploy/etc all apps in specific hosts folder? I went thru all Tomcat configuration manual and didn't find anything about this. Manager app is always showing all web-applications.

I also have several vhosts, however in different folder, using appBase="/home/...". I can't find a way to access the manager in vhosts - vhost/manager shows 404. But I can see it being deployed in the log. Any idea? – Ondra Žižka Nov 25 '10 at 13:56

I haven't got an environment here with virtual hosts set up to try this on but I think if you deploy a separate instance of the manager to each virtual host directory then it may restrict it successfully.
