crowd upgrade on linux fails

We unsuccessfully attempted to upgrade crowd to 2.7.2

I feel like we followed the instructions carefully, and tailing the apache-tomcat.catalina.out log file, it shows it coming up (eventually) - but we cannot access on port 8080

I'm very new to Atlassian, so I'm not sure the best way to ask this question.

here is the server.xml file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Server port="8020" shutdown="SHUTDOWN">

<Service name="Catalina">

<Connector acceptCount="100" connectionTimeout="20000"
disableUploadTimeout="true" enableLookups="false"
maxHttpHeaderSize="8192" maxThreads="150"
minSpareThreads="25" port="8095" redirectPort="8080"
useBodyEncodingForURI="true" URIEncoding="UTF-8"/>

<Engine defaultHost="localhost" name="Catalina">
<Host appBase="webapps" autoDeploy="true" name="localhost" unpackWARs="true"/>

<!-- To connect to an external web server (typically Apache) -->
<!-- Define an AJP 1.3 Connector on port 8009 -->
<Connector port="8080"
scheme="https" secure="true"
clientAuth="false" sslProtocol="TLS" SSLEnabled="true"
keystoreFile="/opt/data/aviva/ssl/.keystore" keystorePass="hmpssl" />

What else can I show you that might help solve this?

I've opened a ticket with Atlassian support on this - once there is a resolution, I will post it here. Possibly with a better description of the problem.

Are you using a proxyName? What happens when you do wget on localhost:8080/crowd from the server itself?

Thank you for your quick response -

Port is not blocked - when we 'roll back' to the previous version (2.4 I think) by renaming the folder, we can get in just fine to that port.

Is the port blocked on linux? Maybe stop iptables if it is running and check after that? Another thing is to check if selinux is enabled or not.
