This widget could not be displayed.

What does the log say?  Look at the ones in <confluence home>/logs and the <confluence install>/log/catalina.out

Ah, you've added the log.

That implies that either Tomcat is already running, or it is crashing hard during startup, or you've got a networking problem. 

The hard crash is most likely, you'll need to look at catalina.out to diagnose it

Nothing

Okay. Tomcat is starting after 10-15 minutes after Confluence. Why? I don't know.  OS and VM isnt changed configurations.   May be plugins?

I think problem in RefinedWiki Mobile plugin. He wontenabled

I'm stuck, I don't know what is happening, as there's only bits of log and no description of what is happening.

I had this same problem and I've stopped confluence app then on DB server I've restarted postgresql and I've started confluence app. Maybe that's will help you.

Yes I have exactly the same problem, but after restart confluence its fixed but it is annoying it happens times after times again

Maybe Atlassian wakes up and can tell us what the problem is ?
