If the server.xml was copied over from the previous older installation, just update the file with following on the listener section

-->
<Server port="8005" shutdown="SHUTDOWN">
 <Listener className="org.apache.catalina.startup.VersionLoggerListener" />
    <!-- Security listener. Documentation at /docs/config/listeners.html
    <Listener className="org.apache.catalina.security.SecurityListener" />
    -->
    <!--APR library loader. Documentation at /docs/apr.html -->
    <Listener className="org.apache.catalina.core.AprLifecycleListener" SSLEngine="on"/>
    <!--Initialize Jasper prior to webapps are loaded. Documentation at /docs/jasper-howto.html -->
    <!-- Prevent memory leaks due to use of particular java/javax APIs-->
    <Listener className="org.apache.catalina.core.JreMemoryLeakPreventionListener" />
    <Listener className="org.apache.catalina.mbeans.GlobalResourcesLifecycleListener" />
    <Listener className="org.apache.catalina.core.ThreadLocalLeakPreventionListener" />
    <!-- Global JNDI resources
         Documentation at /docs/jndi-resources-howto.html
    -->
 
    <!-- A "Service" is a collection of one or more "Connectors" that share
        a single "Container" Note:  A "Service" is not itself a "Container",
        so you may not define subcomponents such as "Valves" at this level.
