Hi Sripada,

I am wondering how the upgrade has succeeded if the new instance hasn't been and it's still not being able to find the correct BAMBOO_HOME.

Can you please double check:

  • That the old 4.3 instance is not running
  • That you've edited the from the 5.5 instance
  • That the path in is correct
  • That the system user starting the 5.5 instance has been given read/write/execute permissions in the BAMBOO_HOME and BAMBOO_INSTALL directories
  • That you have followed the Upgrade Guide
  • That you haven't just installed the new instance pointing to a different BAMBOO_HOME, without upgrading at all?
  • That you have gone through the Setup Wizard and chosen a Custom Installation
  • That there weren't any errors during the upgrade

If this checklist doesn't help, can you please describe in details the steps you took to upgrade?

Kind regards,
Felipe Kraemer
