In the same directory, open the file server.xml in a text editor and make sure that the complete block

<Connector port="8080" protocol="HTTP/1.1"
	... />

looks like this:

<Connector port="8080" protocol="HTTP/1.1"
	connectionTimeout="20000"
	URIEncoding="UTF-8"
	redirectPort="8443"
	address="127.0.0.1" />
