Tomcat Manager

NOTE: This article applies only for our Private JVM tool available for all cPanel Private JVM Linux accounts (does not apply to our Shared JVM Business, or Shared JVM Mocha accounts). The private JVM is also available for our Java VPS + Java cloud packages.

This article explains how you can setup and use the Tomcat management GUI, "Tomcat Manager".

When you map a domain name in our Private JVM tool, you will see "Select Management Application" menu right bellow the section "Mapped domains".

You need to select Tomcat Manager and click on "Set" button. When you go back to your Private JVM menu you should see "Select Tomcat Main user and password" section.  

You MUST set the administrator username and administrator password for accessing the Tomcat Manager instance.

After clicking on the "Set" link the tool will setup your account roles and rights, so you will be able to access your Tomcat manager using the following link: - where is the mapped domain in your Private JVM.

After your login to the Tomcat Manager you will be able to set additional usernames and passwords, but please note that if you set your Tomcat user again in Private JVM it will wipe off all additional users you have created.

NOTE: If you do not setup your default administrator user/pass for the Tomcat manager, the Tomcat manager will throw an error and you won't be able to use it.

NOTE: If you are currently using an account that does not come with our private JVM tool, you can easily upgrade to a Private JVM account using our upgrade form located at:
