Hi Simon,

From looking at the logs, it looks like Bamboo has actually started.   However since this appears to be an initial installation, I would actually expect you to have to go to the website to complete the setup.  It appears to be bound to port 8085, so if you can use a web browser on that machine, you should be able to go to http://localhost:8085 on that server in order to complete this setup.

If this is a headless machine, then perhaps you can connect to this bamboo site from another machine in your network, but with the IP address of your bamboo machine (instead of localhost) and over port 8085.

If there is some error with trying to reach this page, please let me know some more details about what you see in the web browser here.

Hi Vineesh,

Like the original author has posted, we encourage you to look into the logs to see what is happening in the background. We will not know anything with just a screenshot.
