That message means that you have a filter declared in your web.xml
(with name "springSecurityFilterChain"), but there is no such filter
among Java Beans created by a SpringFramework Context.

I cannot say what caused it without knowing what your OWF app is, how
it is configured,
and what INFO messages were earlier in the log files.
I would guess that Spring did not start, or have not found some of its
configuration files (context definition files).

If you broke application in such way (and you say that even logging is
broken), you would better uninstall everything and start over from a
blank page,  documenting your steps,

Unless you provide enough information for others to reproduce your
configuration, not much can be said.
