Hi @ramesh.borusu

seeing this question is a bit old but same time seeing similar requests here for posterity a more general knowledge base entry which can help guiding the way to some basic troubleshooting considerations.

Often, from plain static logfile reading it is hard to pinpoint the reason for Confluence not starting up.

It is easier when sitting in front of the server to check basic things like filesystem healthiness, disk space, memory consumption and so on.

Regards,
Daniel

@ramesh.borusu

Please check conf/server.xml file, if there are any changes related to SSL password or something similar to that
