If you start Tomcat from Eclipse and get a 404-Error code when you go to http://localhost:8080, there is a easy way to fix the issue.

Just go to Properties for Tomcat (right click on Tomcat - Servers Tab)

Switch location Tomcat Properties
Switch location Tomcat Properties

Switch location from [workspace metadata] to [/Servers/Tomcat v…]

Restart Tomcat from Eclipse and go back to http://localhost:8080. You will see Tomcat configuration page.
