yes, they retained "terminal" so I can still use a unix command line.
i had a unix reference book but tossed it a few months after my brain issues. my reading isn't what it used to be, well, comprehension is fine, retention beyond a page ain't worth jack.
anyway, i remember(ed) there is a document in the tomcat folder where you set up the password, maybe a line about admin in the bin folder(?), set one, save it, then run terminal (unix) through the various folders and run your localhost. problem is, that was tomcat 4 or 5, we're up to build 7 now with 8 in an alpha stage.
i never did the java apps(applets), PHP or other major development apps, didn't even use the WYSIWYG stuff, all hard coded through text edit.
just wanted to do some stuff with html5 and play around. it's good therapeutatically.
