FAQ
Hello,
I've just installed Tomcat 4.1.12 und added a admin user to the
/conf/tomcat-users.xml:

<user username="admin" password="test" roles="manager"/>

After trying to login to the administration tool, the Tomcat ansers with:

message: Invalid direct reference to form login page
description: The request sent by the client was syntactically incorrect
(Invalid direct reference to form login page).

All the other useres have the same problem also. The tomcat ist running on
Windows 2000 (german version). What's the problem?


Thanks!
Juergen

    Don't you need to give him the "admin" role?

    That said, it seems like there was somebody else with the "Invalid direct reference" error - you might want to search the mailing lists archives to see if you can find it.

    You have 2 problems:

    (1) you cannot cache you form based login page. The error you are
    seeiing is because you have probably cached (or bookmarked) the admin
    login page. You must type http://localhost:8080//admin.

    (2) As Jeff answered, you need an admin role, not manager
