How to get admin access to Tomcat 7 on OS X Yosemite

In continuing the path to learn more about Tomcat 7, I had to configured my local instance to give me admin access to the “Server Status,” “Manager App,” and “Host Manager” pages. ┬áIt was actually quiet easy.

    1. In your terminal, go to /usr/local/Cellar/tomcat7/7.0.63/libexec/conf
    2. vim tomcat-users.xml
    3. Add the following:

      <role rolename="manager-gui"/>
      <role rolename="admin-gui"/>
      <user username="tomcat" password="s3cret" roles="manager-gui,admin-gui"/>
