Default Password For Tomcat 6, 7, 8

In this tutorial, I am showing from where we can find or get the default password for the tomcat servlet container.

Note: Here we are covering all the versions from Tomcat 6 to 8.

Default Password For Tomcat 8,7

Modify the $TOMCAT_HOME/conf/tomcat-users.xml as below, here you can see new role is added as “manager-gui”. You have to create this file if it is not already existing.

<tomcat-users>
<!--
  <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"/>
-->

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

</tomcat-users>

Default Password For Tomcat 6

Modify the $TOMCAT_HOME/conf/tomcat-users.xml as below here you can see new role is added as manager. You have to create this file if it is not already existing.

<tomcat-users>

  <role rolename="manager"/>
  <user username="admin" password="admin" roles="manager"/>

</tomcat-users>

In both cases you can access using username/password will be admin after the modification.
