Failed to start component [StandardEngine[Catalina].StandardHost[localhost].StandardContext[/ssc]]

Hi Fortify!

Java: 11.0

Tomcat 9

SSC version 22.1

SSC was working well. but today as I log in to SSC it is giving me 500 internal errors. as I check with the tomcat manager the SSC war is not started. when i start it gives me the below error.

Failed to start component [StandardEngine[Catalina].StandardHost[localhost].StandardContext[/ssc]]

Need your ASASP response.

  • I think you need to check out any other errors in the catalina.log - are you sure the SSC is completely dead before you try to restart it? No lingering tomcat/SSC apps running?


    Others say this can be because of path issues - but clearly your tomcat doesnt want to start the SSC - so check the ssc/ssc.log - when it "died" - why did it?
    Correlate this timestamp with your catalina log - it should help you build a better picture of what went wrong.

    We used to get issues because our Tomcat was run as "fortify" user, but some folks used to restart it as "su" - very stupid! So ultimately Fortify was put under HELM/Docker - these rookie mistakes no longer happen.
