Bug 59867

Summary: Manager's 403.jsp contains incorrect documentation
Product: Tomcat 8 Reporter: Michael Osipov <michaelo>
Component: ManagerAssignee: Tomcat Developers Mailing List <dev>
Severity: minor    
Priority: P2    
Version: 8.5.x-trunk   
Target Milestone: ----

OS: All   

Description Michael Osipov 2016-07-16 10:45:17 UTC
The fails says:

> By default the Host 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 Host Manager's <tt>context.xml</tt> file.

See http://svn.apache.org/viewvc/tomcat/tc8.5.x/trunk/webapps/manager/WEB-INF/jsp/403.jsp?view=markup#l36

This has been probably copied from the Host Manager but never chaned. It is enough to remove the word "Host".
