[BuildNumberInHomeMatchesDatabase] Bamboo home directory comes from version 6.2 or older (build numb



I'm trying for the first time to install bamboo. I followed instructions from here


I downloaded package atlassian-bamboo-6.9.2.tar.gz so it is not any upgrading from previous version, and other solutions from this forums are not helping me.


So at the final step, I chose embedded database, create user and wait installation to be finalized.  I checked catalina.out and last line was not changed 5 minutes

2019-07-16 13:01:29,048 INFO [http-nio-8085-exec-6] [AccessLogFilter] ceman POST 283816kb

Website did not responded so I decided to restart server. After execution of ./ I got this error Connection refused (Connection refused)

I started bamboo again and in browser I got some bootstrap error that database and home directory are not the same. At the beginning before I started server, I created /var/bamboo/bamboo-home like example from instructon link.

This is error from atlassian-bamboo.log.

What I'm doing wrong?

I tried to see what build number is in database and I got:

sql> select * from bamboo.bandana where bandana_key = 'bamboo.db.version';
Error: org.h2.jdbc.JdbcSQLException: Schema "BAMBOO" not found; SQL statement:

I logged in with command

java -cp h2-1.4.196.jar

and URL is jdbc:h2:file:/var/bamboo/bamboo-home/database/h2 

It seems like database is not created?


sql> show databases;

It is strange because i checked log and  I see that tables are created and the last line is

2019-07-16 12:56:08,325 INFO [setupEmbeddedDatabaseBackgroundThread] [DefaultHibernateConfigurator] Bamboo schema created.
