It's easy enough to check that -- telnet $hostname 8080 -- but it
seems unlikely that's the problem, given the log snippet you posted.
(Also easy enough to change -- look for the Connector element in
server.xml with the port currently set to 8080 and edit it.)

Anyway, for starters:

You originally mentioned XAMPP and a "Tomcat plugin" -- I have no
idea what this "Tomcat plugin" would be, so let's start with what
version of Tomcat are you running, with what JVM?

The snippet of log you posted shows a startup failure -- post the
part immediately before you (or something!) restarted it, through
the failure message.

The "UserDatabase" is the default XML authentication used by Tomcat;
see $CATALINA_HOME/conf/tomcat-users.xml. It's possible something
corrupted it, since TC loads it into memory and rewrites it on exit.
You can easily check that it exists and is valid, of course.
