Tomcat not responding after port change


I created a droplet (512MB Ram 20GB SSD Disk New York 3 Ubuntu 14.04 x64) and i installed Tomcat7 as explained in this tutorial:

Everything was working fine until the time i changed tomcat’s connect port (/etc/tomcat7/server.xml) to 8088 (only to test).

Now, after restarting the service, tomcat is not responding anymore, although the service is running. It’s as my connectio is blocked.

I also tried to resintall tomcat (apt-get purge tomcat7) and reinstall again, but the problem persists.
