FaqInstallationDefaultTomcatPassword

What is the admin username/password of the built-in Tomcat?

The IDE generates a user with the name ide and a random password.

You can find the password in the tomcat-users.xml file. You will find the user ide with appropriate roles. The file is located in your netbeans userdir's tomcat/conf directory. When you start the Apache Tomcat server, the output will show you the actual path.

Example: NetBeans IDE 6 on Windows

Using CATALINA_BASE:   C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\.netbeans\6.0m10\apache-tomcat-6.0.13_base
Using CATALINA_HOME:   C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Apache Tomcat 6.0

Example: NetBeans IDE 5.0 on Linux

Using CATALINA_BASE:   /home/user_name/.netbeans/5.0/jakarta-tomcat-5.5.9_base/

Look for the conf folder in the CATALINA_BASE dirctory, and open the tomcat-users.xml file.
