I have an problem setting up an Apache Tomcat on my Synology DS1511+ server. The installing is no problem, but when i try http://"serverAdress":7070 i can't log into the the manage section. I have altered the tomcat-user.xml in /var/packages/Tomcat/target/apache-tomcat-6.0.36/conf/ with this roles

<role rolename="manager"/>
<role rolename="manager-gui"/>
<role rolename="admin"/>
<user username="user" password="password" roles="admin,manager,manager-gui"/>

But still the same problem. Any suggestions what the problem could be. Best regard Morten Starck

  1. you need to ssh to the synology using root account with your default GUI password.
  2. go to directory /var/packages/Tomcat/target/apache-tomcat-6.0.36/conf/
  3. edit the file Tomcat-users.xml
  4. stop and restart Tomcat server
  5. now can login with your new account

This is an example of the code of the file tomcat-users.xml:

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>    
<role rolename="admin"/>
<role rolename="admin-gui"/>
<role rolename="manager"/>
<role rolename="manager-gui"/>
<role rolename="manager-script"/>
<role rolename="manager-jmx"/>
<role rolename="manager-status"/>
<user username="user" password="password" roles="admin,admin-gui,manager,manager-gui,manager-script,manager-jmx,manager-status"/>

It is in the path /var/packages/Tomcat7/target/src/conf.

If there is any problem with the XML, you can check the log file: /var/packages/Tomcat7/target/src/logs/catalina.out

  1. Through Terminal/SSH session, open the /var/packages/Tomcat7/target/src/conf/tomcat-users.xml file.

  2. Ensure atleast below is available in that:

    <role rolename="manager-gui"/> 
    <user username="tomcat" password="s3cret" roles="manager-gui"/>  
  3. Under Package Center in the Diskstation, restart Tomcat service (Stop and Start).

Now you should be able to login with username 'tomcat' password 's3cret'.
