For security reasons, there is no default user configured for Tomcat web administration, but you can create a Tomcat user in SSH.

To Create a Tomcat User

  1. Connect to your server via SSH (more info).
  2. Switch to the root user (more info).
  3. Edit the /usr/java/tomcat-5.5/conf/tomcat-users.xml file, for more information on editing files in SSH see the following.
  4. Add an entry by changing the user name and password as appropriate.

    Note: For the changes to take effect, you will need to restart the Tomcat service with the service tomcat55 restart command.
