we are trying to install a formspider into new server where is installed a Tomcat 8.0. Installation fails with below error:

1- java.io.IOException: Server returned HTTP response code: 403 for URL: http://[newServer:port]/manager/text/serverinfo

In requirements you have Apache Tomcat 6.x or above.

Please suggest how to fix it if possible.

Regards, Tomas

Found a fix: add the "manager-script" role to the Tomcat "admin" user in tomcat-users.xml file

Hi Tomas,

This is not a Formspider related issue. If you want to deploy an application to tomcat, you need to have a user with necessary roles and privileges. As this roles/privileges may differ in different versions of tomcat, it's a good idea to test deploying a web app in advance before switching between versions.

Yes, it's not a FS issue, but without knowing what to test prior installation your FS installation fails.

In my case, adding "manager-script" role to Tomcat (Apache Tomcat/8.0.28} "admin" user solved an issue and I was able to finalize a FS installation.
