Hi @iogbonna

What Tomcat version are you on?

Cheers

This looks like a problem with Tomcat 8.5.49.

Bug tracked upstream: https://bz.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=63970

Please upgrade to 8.5.50 when that becomes available. In the meantime, you can downgrade to 8.5.46 which I have tested and confirmed works.

I am running Tomcat 9

Found the issue, the versions of JRE in my system variables and the one that tomcat is using are different. So I had to make them use the same version and its up.

So as you said it’s a tomcat issue.

Thanks so much for your help

Thanks, sir, I have been struggling with this issue for a while, and I had to suspend installation for a while hoping for a new version of Java thinking It was the main prob. I will try and let you know if I was successful.
