The license of PhenoTips changed from LGPL 2.1 to AGPL 3.0.
This version of PhenoTips now requires an application container that supports the Servlet v3.0 specification. In particular, this means that Tomcat 6, the version available in RHEL/CentOS 6.x, is no longer supported, and Tomcat 7 is required. In RHEL/CentOS 6.x, this can be installed from the EPEL repository.
