Bamboo is not working!

When I am starting bamboo as follows, I got the error message. 

>    cd /opt/atlassian/bamboo/current/bin

>    ./

Warning: To run bamboo in the foreground, start the server with -f 


I have started bamboo with -f  command now bamboo is showing below error. 

Error: Bamboo bootstrap failed: Failed to run pre-bootstrap upgrade tasks. Please contact Atlassian Support at


To resolve this, I have to add a new license in the bamboo.cfg.xml file. I have a server with centos, but I could not find bamboo.cfg.xml


Any solution!

What does the application log file say the problem is?

You don't put licences into config files, so doing that might actually be the problem - a corrupt config file could stop the startup.

I have checked this doc for the same error. 

Ah, yes, sorry, I was confusing Bamboo with something in another question.

But the principles still apply:

  • Is your config file correctly formatted (with the new licence)?
  • What does the application log say the problem is?

Hello, I have solved the error. 


I am facing another issue. 

I have configured the SCP task in bamboo to copy the files to a remote server. 

When I push any files from my local system, it reaches the bamboo server successfully, and builds are also created successfully. 

But on the remote server, changes do not reflect.  Any idea?
