I just installed bamboo.

Entered the following for the bamboo home specification in:

bamboo.home= /Users/mike/bamboo/bamboo-home

Restarted bamboo: bin/

However, Bamboo still complains with the following:

Bamboo home directory specified: .
There was an error creating the Bamboo Home directory. The most common cause is you haven't specified it.
To fix this, simply set the bamboo.home property in the file /atlassian-bamboo/WEB-INF/classes/ to your chosen bamboo home directory .

Hi @Michael Oyebola,

Based on the bamboo.home mentioned, it seems there is an empty space in its value:

bamboo.home= /Users/mike/bamboo/bamboo-home

Could you please attempt on removing that space, resulting on:


And restart Bamboo with user "mike".

Kind regards,
