Fawad,

I tried to reproduce the issue following the steps you had provided. Did
the same. Could not reproduce the issue. You definitely had done something
other which may have just deleted the manager app from webapps directory so
double check that.

I confirm that for the manager app to start or deploy you do not need the
tomcat-users.xml. So I am sure just renaming it did not cause tomcat to
give '404' error. 404 means either the webapplication has not been deployed
( for any exception occurring) OR its deleted. So for this do the following
:

i) check if <tomcat-root>/webapps directory and see if you have the manager
directory with all its content
ii) If Yes, Check the server.log and startup.log in the server log.

Anyway, I suggest you just install a fresh copy of the tomcat taking all
the backup of your existing webapplication if thats possible . For me it
seems the best solution.

Best of luck
Vishwanath
