Confluence Test Install listenerStart Error

This question is a continuation of the following: https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/77617/confluence-test-environment-without-attachments

I am trying to create a test server to mirror my production installation. Confluence 3.5.5 on Solaris 10.

I followed the confluence migrations instructions - copied over the install and home dirs (without attachments) to a new server and dumped the database.

The following are the errors at the end of catalina.out:

A clean install and home dir started fine. Any thoughts?

The catalina log doesn't give information about this issue, you can verify your confluence log. Also you can try to shut your instance and then remove the contents from these directories in order to restore the bundle plugins that may causing this problem:

* The _<confluence-home>/bundled-plugins_ folder
* The _<confluence-home>/plugin-cache_ folder
* The _<confluence-home>/plugins-osgi-cache_ folder
* The _<confluence-home>/plugins-temp_ folder
* The _<confluence-home>/bundled-plugins_language_ folder

Try this and start again, if it doesn't work I suggest to create a support ticket.

Thanks! Along with the clearing the plugins I had an error in conf/server.xml
