Recently, I restarted my JBoss 5.1 AS app, running locally, (Mac 10.5.6) and noticed that I could not reach my jmx-console via a web browser. Then I tried telnetting into the port on which I thought the web container was running and got a connection refused error. So it would seem that the web container isn't starting and I wanted to ask how I could troubleshoot this more. There is nothing suspicious in my boot.log file, the contents of which I have included below.
What command do you use to start the server? And are you trying to access the server from a separate (remote) system? The boot.log isn't useful in these cases. It's the logs that you see on the console (or the last few lines in the server.log during startup) which will usually have important information like these:
What does your log show? And finally what URL are you trying to access?
