I recently installed the stand-alone version of GeoWebCache 1.6.0 and deployed it on a Tomcat 7.0 container.
The official documentation tells to modify "geowebcache.xml" in the following location ..
The main configuration file for GeoWebCache is geowebcache.xml. It is located inside the the main GeoWebCache application directory at WEB-INF/classes/geowebcache.xml.
But I couldn't find it anywhere in the "...\Tomcat7.0\webapps\geowebcache\" at all!
Also, I have an empty list of layers on the "demo" page on the geowebcache web admin. When I hit "Reload Configuration" button, it popped up a login box. I looked for username and password in "user.properties" file following the instruction. But it only contains "geowebcache=secured,ROLE_ADMINISTRATOR".
What are the username and password should I use?
It just has a so bad documentation... ...
p.s. I don't have GeoServer installed yet. Does GeoWebCache mean to work in stand-alone? I just want to cache an external WMS. Where do I find "GeoWebCache.xml" and where are all cached files stored in Tomcat?
