problems migrating confluence to new mac server

My confluence server died an ugly death a few days back including frying the confluence HD. No worries, recreating my data was easy because I'm nutso about having backups.

I've setup my new machine with a folder structure that's identical to the old one and put all of my confluence files in the same places.

I've gone through the Installing Confluence Standalong on Mac OS X from Zip File instructions and verified the config files are accurate and no changes were needed since all is the same as before.

However, confluence won't start. I just get a Tomcat 404 page.

Confluence: 3.5.5-std

OS X: Mavericks (10.9) -» same on old and new machines

JRE: 1.6.0_65 -» I assume the old machine used this version since it was also running Mavericks

When I start confluence using the "...in a terminal window" script it shows the error dump below, however I'm not tech enough on Java to know what to do with the info.

I'd really appreciate some help...

Thanks,

Steve

Apart from all the warnings, it seems like it start at port 8080 by looking at the following

INFO: Starting Coyote HTTP/1.1 on http-8080

Yes, it does start on port 8080 but http://localhost:8080 is where I've been getting the Tomcat 404 errors.

Still hoping for a bit of guidance with this one...thanks
