When MailArchiva V8.11 is downloaded and installed over any prior version,  the server may not start. The reason being, the auto update system was changed and now requires autoDeploy and unpackWARS is set to true in Tomcat application server's server.xml file. 

Edit C:\ProgramData\MailArchiva\Tomcat\conf\server.xml (Windows)
Edit /var/opt/mailarchiva/tomcat/conf/server.xml (Linux) 

...and ensure the Host tag is as follows:

<Host appBase="webapps" autoDeploy="true" name="localhost" unpackWARs="true"  startStopThreads="6">

Afterwards, restart MailArchiva for changes to take effect.
