Hi @Jim Yeh, thanks for reaching out!

Based on that line, there might be 2 possible causes for that issue. My recommendation would be to check your logs and follow SpringMVC dispatcher could not be started. 

If that doesn't fix it for you, we'll need more information to continue helping you. Is there any other message in the logs? Was there any meaningful change in your installation before the reboot?

Please let us know if that solved the problem, or if you need further assistance :) 

Best regards,
