**I'm able to reach tomcat in the browser. I've done all the prep to be able to access the GUI apps, but I am still told I am not authorized.
Below is a screenshot of my tomcat-users.xml file or I have it in code blocks below. I'm using Tomcat 8.5.14 for Ubuntu 16.04 Linux.
<tomcat-users> <role rolename="manager-gui"/> <role rolename="admin-gui"/> <user username="tomcat-admin" password="Newvegas3" roles="manager-gui,admin-gui"/> </tomcat-users>
I've also suitably allowed connections to manager and host manager apps via this method from someone's post on a similar question.
<Context privileged="true" antiResourceLocking="false" docBase="/opt/tomcat/webapps/manager"> <Valve className="org.apache.catalina.valves.RemoteAddrValve" allow="^.*$" /> </Context>
<Context privileged="true" antiResourceLocking="false" docBase="/opt/tomcat/webapps/host-manager"> <Valve className="org.apache.catalina.valves.RemoteAddrValve" allow="^.*$" /> </Context>
Now on the tomcat portal in browser I get prompted for password when trying to access the manager app or the host manager app but inputing the information from tomcat-users.xml and hitting "OK" just loops me to putting in my information without doing anything. When I escape the password prompt, I just get sent to an "error 401 unathorized page" for both manager app and host-manager app. What gives? I cannot figure out what I'm doing wrong even after hours of testing.
