The is the "bottom" of the stack trace, from your original post:

There's more in the log file before that. It should say something like:

[date and time] SomeKindOfException: Something bad happened! Oh, no!
Cause by: org.apache.catalina.core.Whatever.someMethod(
     at org.apache.catalina.core.Whatever.someMethod(

...ending in the stuff you've already posted. If you post the entire
stack trace, it will likely tell us what the problem was. It looks like
there was an error that caused Tomcat to voluntarily shut down, and then
the shut down caused an error, too.

Tell you what: stop Tomcat 9if it's somehow running), delete your
logs/catalina.out file, then re-start Tomcat. If/when it fails, attach
the /entire/ catalina.out file to a message to the list, and we'll check
it out.

APR will tell you if it's running at the top of your logs/catalina.out
log file. Each time you start the server, it should tell you whether APR
is enabled or not.

Why particular reason you're putting Apache httpd into the mix? Tomcat
is a perfectly fine web server on it's own.
