Default Manager/Admin context path problem

Chapter 15, pg. 322-323 talks about changing the context path for the Manager and Admin apps in Tomcat. I am running Tomcat 5.5.9 (as is the rest of the class I am in), and can not get this to work. The text says to make the change in admin.xml and manager.xml. We all have done this, but it seems to make no difference. We would certainly appreciate any suggestions to get this to work.

Thank you

Well, we figured it out. For anyone that should need to know, if you place this into server.xml in conf:

    <Context path="/yourPath" docBase="../server/webapps/admin" privileged="true">
    <Context path="/yourPath" docBase="../server/webapps/manager" privileged="true">
        <ResourceLink global="UserDatabase" name="users" type="org.apache.catalina.UserDatabase"/>

... with the other context paths nested in <host>...</host>, it will work. Where you see path="/yourPath", substitute whatever you want your context path to be.

Hope this helps someone down the road,
