Subject Re: connection refused, localhost not found

The app is not running, yup, guess I can't argue with that. 
Unfortunately it's not logging any exceptions. I see that tomcat starts 
a session for the context, and it logs the request in 
localhost_access_log, but otherwise, it's dead as a dodo.

It's definitely on 8080 - the other contexts are obviously on 8080 and 
still run fine.
