Setup Tomcat manager app

In my last post I set up a Tomcat application server in general, now I enable Tomcat manager app for deployment.

# Tomcat Users
mv /app/myApp/tomcat/conf/tomcat-users.xml /app/myApp/tomcat/conf/tomcat-users.xml_original
vim /app/myApp/tomcat/conf/tomcat-users.xml


# By default the Manager is only accessible from a browser running on the same machine as Tomcat. If you wish to modify this restriction, you'll need to edit the Manager's context.xml file.
vim /app/myApp/tomcat/webapps/manager/META-INF/context.xml
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<tomcat-users xmlns=""
              xsi:schemaLocation=" tomcat-users.xsd"
  <role rolename="manager-gui"/>
  <role rolename="manager-script"/>
  <user username="tomcat" password="tomcat" roles="manager-gui,manager-script"/>
<Server port="7010" shutdown="SHUTDOWN">
    <Resource name="UserDatabase" auth="Container" type="org.apache.catalina.UserDatabase" description="User database that can be updated and saved" factory="org.apache.catalina.users.MemoryUserDatabaseFactory" pathname="conf/tomcat-users.xml" />
  <Service name="Catalina">
    <Connector port="7011" />
    <!-- Define an AJP 1.3 Connector on port 7012 -->
    <Connector port="7012" protocol="AJP/1.3" secretRequired="false" />
    <Engine name="Catalina" defaultHost="localhost" jvmRoute="myApp-dev">
      <Host name="localhost" appBase="webapps" />
      <Realm className="org.apache.catalina.realm.LockOutRealm">
        <!-- This Realm uses the UserDatabase configured in the global JNDI
             resources under the key "UserDatabase".  Any edits
             that are performed against this UserDatabase are immediately
             available for use by the Realm.  -->
        <Realm className="org.apache.catalina.realm.UserDatabaseRealm"
<Context antiResourceLocking="false" privileged="true" >
    <!-- ## uncomment this Block ##
    <Valve className="org.apache.catalina.valves.RemoteAddrValve"
         allow="127\.\d+\.\d+\.\d+|::1|0:0:0:0:0:0:0:1" />
