My best advice would be to get the stock version of server.xml that
comes with TC 5.5 and start with that. Use your 4.0 server.xml as a
reference and add /only/ the things you absolutely need to your new
server.xml.

(If you're moving from 4.0 to a later version, why not go all the way up
to 6.x?)

A major difference between TC 4.x and 5.x+ is that you should no longer
be putting <Context> elements in your server.xml file. Instead, create a
META-INF directory in your webapp (or WAR file) and stick a
"context.xml" file in there that contains your <Context> element. If you
are using a JNDI DataSource and it doesn't need to be used by any other
webapp, then put the <Resource> definition in there instead of in
server.xml under <GlobalNamingResources>.

See
http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-5.5-doc/config/context.html
and
http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-5.5-doc/jndi-datasource-examples-howto.html

Also, logging is completely different, so you can ignore any <Logger>
elements you may have in your old config.

Basically, server.xml should only contain your <Connector> elements and
any <Service>, <Host>, and <Alias> customizations you may have made in
the past.

I hope that helps,
