chmod +x *.sh
3. test if it starts
./setclasspath.sh
./startup.sh
something like this should appear:
./startup.sh

Using CATALINA_HOME:   apache-tomcat-6.0.20
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: apache-tomcat-6.0.20/temp

< role rolename=”admin” />
< role rolename=”manager” />
< role rolename=”manager-gui” />
< user username=”admin” password=”mypass” roles=”admin,manager,manager-gui” />
with your username and password for administration
