I`ve been using Tomcat v5.5 for my current project and it was working fine for long time. However this morning it started giving me "Publishing Failed" error when I try to start the server.

-rebooting the server didn`t help
-shutting down the server from didn`t help
-changing the connector port didn`t help

Log file:
Apr 9, 2007 8:57:14 AM org.apache.catalina.startup.Catalina stopServer
SEVERE: Catalina.stop: Connection refused: connect

I don`t understand the reason of this sudden missbehaviour in Tomcat.

Can anyone help me with this problem?
