Cannot access Spotfire server - no Web interface (only SSH works)

Recently one of our Spotfire environments got down out of a sudden (not sure what happened). When I try to open the server's web interface (i.e. access "Notes & Services") I get that:

When I SSHed to it and ran ps -ef | grep tomcat it listed only one process:

user 27247 26393  0 11:33 pts/1    00:00:00 grep --color=auto tomcat

When I did the same in a working Spotfire server environment it showed 2 processes (including the one above): 

root      1623     1  1 Nov02 ?        03:15:21 /home/ec2-user/tss/jdk/jre/bin/java -Djava.util.logging.config.file=/home/ec2-user/tss/tomcat/conf/logging.properties -Djava.util.logging.manager=org.apache.juli.ClassLoaderLogManager -server -XX:+AlwaysPreTouch -XX:+UseG1GC -XX:+ScavengeBeforeFullGC -XX:+DisableExplicitGC -Xms512M -Xmx4096M -Djdk.tls.ephemeralDHKeySize=2048 -Djava.protocol.handler.pkgs=org.apache.catalina.webresources -Dorg.apache.catalina.security.SecurityListener.UMASK=0027 -Dcom.sun.management.jmxremote -Dorg.apache.catalina.session.StandardSession.ACTIVITY_CHECK=true -DLog4jContextSelector=org.apache.logging.log4j.core.async.AsyncLoggerContextSelector -Dignore.endorsed.dirs= -classpath /home/ec2-user/tss/tomcat/bin/bootstrap.jar:/home/ec2-user/tss/tomcat/bin/tomcat-juli.jar -Dcatalina.base=/home/ec2-user/tss/tomcat -Dcatalina.home=/home/ec2-user/tss/tomcat -Djava.io.tmpdir=/home/ec2-user/tss/tomcat/temp org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap start
user 17726 17677  0 13:38 pts/2    00:00:00 grep --color=auto tomcat

So what I did is I copied the command (from the working ENV) that was missing and executed it in the broken ENV as root:

sudo /home/user/tss/jdk/jre/bin/java -Djava.util.logging.config.file=/home/user/tss/tomcat/conf/logging.properties -Djava.util.logging.manager=org.apache.juli.ClassLoaderLogManager -server -XX:+AlwaysPreTouch -XX:+UseG1GC -XX:+ScavengeBeforeFullGC -XX:+DisableExplicitGC -Xms512M -Xmx4096M -Djdk.tls.ephemeralDHKeySize=2048 -Djava.protocol.handler.pkgs=org.apache.catalina.webresources -Dorg.apache.catalina.security.SecurityListener.UMASK=0027 -Dcom.sun.management.jmxremote -Dorg.apache.catalina.session.StandardSession.ACTIVITY_CHECK=true -DLog4jContextSelector=org.apache.logging.log4j.core.async.AsyncLoggerContextSelector -Dignore.endorsed.dirs= -classpath /home/user/tss/tomcat/bin/bootstrap.jar:/home/user/tss/tomcat/bin/tomcat-juli.jar -Dcatalina.base=/home/user/tss/tomcat -Dcatalina.home=/home/user/tss/tomcat -Djava.io.tmpdir=/home/user/tss/tomcat/temp org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap start

After that I was able to access the Web interface, well sort of as I was getting this error:

When I checked the console output after I saw the above error on the Web interface I saw that error:
