are you using a supported java version? which version of webser vs which java version?

If you did not change anything than restart and hope it works.

or restore a system backup.

if it does not work:

It happen if there are two more ContextLoaderListener. check the web.xml for missing/duplicate entries/corruption.

Another resource for log entries is the <crowd-home>/logs/atlassian-crowd.log. Please let us know if you find anything helpful logged there. The Crowd home directory is defined in <crowd_install>/crowd-webapp/WEB-INF/classes/

Thanks for your replys, 

I'm looking into it today. 

-did allready use system Backup-Up's (probably a cause for dup.-entries, due to VM not correctly shuting down)

-looking into further log (as mentioned)

Thank you for your help. 


The glimps into mentioned log helped me: 

So that, after a reboot, the server only runs correctly after a start/stop

This needs to be repaired, but the server isrunnning now, and i'll get back to my original Task to replace the expired certificate in Tomcat.
