It's because you've got the wrong connection settings.  The last error in the log is a giveaway:

  1. 2014-09-21 16:07:14,832 http-bio-8095-exec-19 ERROR [crowd.console.action.Login] Failed to connect to the authentication server, please check your
  2. The or application.password in the file does not match the password in Crowd.

where should a change it? i update password in 2 directories bin/client/conf folder and bin/crowd-webapp/WEB-INF/classes folder and get this error again((

Check the under CROWD_HOME (data directory) and make sure the application password in the file is correct.

Another thing to check would be the URL in the same file. It should be localhost or the ip address of the machine.

If you want to reset the password, try this:

what does it mean correct?i have password in but how i know that it is correct?

It means you've given it the wrong password. It does not match with what you have put in Crowd to allow it access. You need to check that what you've set up in Crowd matches what you've set in the file. Generally, you won't be able to read a password though, you'll need to change it to be 100% sure what is in there. I tend to use copy and paste to do this, so that I know I'm using the same source password every time.
