spring boot – My project does not initialize Tomcat. Error starting Tomcat context

When I run application.java, I get the following error:

2022-07-22 15:56:17.958 ERROR 10064 --- [  restartedMain] o.s.b.web.embedded.tomcat.TomcatStarter  : Error starting Tomcat context.

In application.java, I use: org.springframework.boot.SpringApplication and org.springframework.boot.autoconfigure.SpringBootApplication:

package com.portfolio.lourdes;
import org.springframework.boot.SpringApplication;
import org.springframework.boot.autoconfigure.SpringBootApplication;

@SpringBootApplication
public class LourdesApplication {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        SpringApplication.run(LourdesApplication.class, args);
    }
}

I use xampp and mysql. I don’t know much about it or how to solve it. I don’t know if I have to add any new dependency.
