Bamboo server not able to point to a browser after installation

Efua Larbi September 26, 2020

I installed Bamboo 5.10.3 on an AWS Linux instance and 7.1 on a CentOS 7 machine. I changed the ports from 8080 to 8085 but it will still not start nor point to a browser. I checked bamboo home, bamboo installation directories and they've all been set up properly. What should I do? We need this server to start so we can start using it.

Thank you

Hi @Efua Larbi ,

Let's verify if Bamboo is running, and on which port.

  1. What do you see when you run ps -ef | grep com.atlassian.bamboo?
    1. If the above command returns nothing, try running ./ console and share the output
  2. What is the output of sudo netstat -tunlp | grep 8085 ? This test will show if any java process is listening on port 8085.
  3. Finally, also check if there is any firewall that may be blocking port 8085.

Hi @Kanwar running the  ps -ef | grep com.atlassian.bamboo showed the process id of bamboo and that it has been started.

The sudo sudo netstat -tunlp | grep 8085 showed that java was listening on the port. However I was able to get one of my instances with the Bamboo installation (7.1 version)  running and pointing to the browser; server wizard of Bamboo. I added a rule under Security Groups to "All TCP" "Anywhere".   However my other AWS instance with 5.10 version of Bamboo is still not running. I changed the ports under conf/server.xml to 8080 but its still not working. What else am I doing wrong.

If I get you right you are basically dealing with two independent Bamboo installations. Could you please describe a more precisely what the status with the Bamboo 5.10 installation is?

As far as I understoof the Bamboo 7.1 instance is running fine why we can put this aside for a moment in this consideration.

Is for the still troubling installation a process visible using "ps" and the firewall configured so that access is possible?

My Bamboo is up and running now. I removed the 5.1 version and installed 6.1. I also stopped Bamboo and restarted it, also changed the port numbers in /server.xml file and it worked. If you’ve a similar problem you can also try disconnecting one of the connectors in the /server.xml file and it’ll work.
