My WMS on a local test server was working fine with GeoExplorer but suddenly stopped working and now I don't get the LocalServer in the datasources list. I have tried reboot/restart.

I tried adding it (http://localhost:8081/geoserver/ccc_beta/wms) manually but that doesn't work.

I can however view the data in Openlayers without any issues.

However Geoxplorer and other software access to WMS doesn't work.

In QGIS -add WMS I get

Could not understand the response.  The wms provider said:
Could not get WMS capabilities: error occurred while parsing element at line 5086 column 11
This is probably due to an incorrect WMS Server URL.
Response was:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<WMS_Capabilities version="1.3.0" updateSequence="1019" xmlns="http://www.opengis.net/wms" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.opengis.net/wms http://localhost:8081/geoserver/schemas/wms/1.3.0/capabilities_1_3_0.xsd">

I also cleared all my stores/cache etc.

==== UPDATE

I put the data on to a linux install and it was all working fine till now when I restarted the machine and get the same error only in Geoexplorer (can't find local data) but everything works fine in Openlayer view. The log is

One of your GeoServer layers is broken, check the log file for more details –  iant Jul 15 '13 at 14:51

Try this, I had your problem all week. I feel like geoserver is too sensitive to changes that really shouldn't impact it.

Check any styles you have edited, as sometime when in geoexplorer you accidentally overwrite styles. I had accidentally overwritten the point layer, I realised at the time, and thought I had fixed it. If you have made SLD changes, simply google SLD Point layer for example, and get the full code and replace the style.

I originally thought it was down to the data source / layer, but after 3 hours of trial and error the fix was restoring the point SLD I had created yesterday. Funny thing is it worked fine yesterday until I turned it off, so maybe a caching error giving me false hope

Now I broke my linux install as well. See the updated question for the log info. I am going to just try a reinstall. –  GeorgeC Jul 23 '13 at 23:44
    
@GeorgeC Hmm im not to sure about that one. I also had to create a new Linux server after I totally messed up mu installation. I would make a note of any key changes you do to your GIS, layers, styles, settings, that way you have an idea of what to back track on. –  Tom Jul 24 '13 at 8:11
