Enable basic security on BurnerWeb (Tomcat)
Last Updated 5 years ago

Two files must be edited to enable user/password controlled web site access:

-> C:\Program Files (x86)\Perennity\embedded\apache\conf\tomcat-users.xml

Uncomment the section with 'role' and 'user' tags and add a role for ordinary users (e.g. 'user' as in the example hereunder). Then create users with their password and attribute the 'user' role.

-> C:\Program Files (x86)\Perennity\embedded\apache\webapps\BurnerWeb\WEB-INF\web.xml

Add the following lines (within the section web-app):

Make sure to add the role that you created earlier using the tag, so it will get access to the BurnerWeb site. You can use the attached web.xml and edit it as needed for the role-name(s).
Finally restart the Perennity Apache service.
Make a backup of the edited files, as they may be overwritten when reinstalling or upgrading Perennity.
To add extra users later on, you should only edit the tomcat-users.xml file, and add an extra line per user with their name, password and role.
