Changing Your Tomcat Login Credentials

After installing Tomcat on your server, you need to change the credentials to log in to Tomcat Manager. If you dont, you'll receive a "Connection Time Out" error when trying to log in to Tomcat.

To Change Your Tomcat Login Credentials

  1. Open the tomcat-users.xml file in a text editor. Its location depends on your server's operating system:
    Operating System Path to File
    Linux /usr/local/easy/etc/easy-tomcat7/tomcat-users.xml
    /usr/apache-tomcat-7.0.42/conf/tomcat-users.xml
    Windows C:\Program Files (x86)\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 7.0\conf\tomcat-users.xml
  2. Locate the following section:
    <role rolename="tomcat"/>
    <role rolename="role1"/>
    <user username="tomcat" password="tomcat" roles="tomcat"/>
    <user username="both" password="tomcat" roles="tomcat,role1"/>
    <user username="role1" password="tomcat" roles="role1"/>
  3. For the users tomcat, both, and role1, enter a new password instead of tomcat.
  4. Save the file.
  5. Log in to Tomcat (http://your server's IP address:8080/manager/) using your newly defined password.
