I have old version of bamboo running on this Linux server, want to install latest version of bamboo on the same with different port.

old bamboo - 5.9.7 using java 1.8.0.65

new bamboo - 6.10.4, want to install latest java for this java 1.8.0-231

can we two instances of tomcats on the same server?

can we have two java- jdks installed on the same, how to point to another java for this latest bamboo.

once latest bamboo is functional want to migrate data from old to new bamboo.

Thanks for your help.

Hi @Raju Adluru

Yes, you can =]

First of all, both Bamboo versions should be able to use any 1.8.x Java versions.
If you still want to keep different versions of JDK you can do it:

  1. Install both JDK versions in your machine.
  2. Edit the setenv.sh file.
  3. Add both JAVA_HOME and JRE_HOME variables with the adequate path for the Java JDK you want to use.
    e.g. 
    JAVA_HOME=/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.8.0_231.jdk/Contents/Home
    JRE_HOME=/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.8.0_231.jdk/Contents/Home

Regarding the ports, they must be different.
There are at least two ports you need to adjust (you may have more connectors), they are configured in server.xml:

  1. server port used for shutdown (default to 8007)
  2. service connector (default to 8085)

Make sure your Bamboo home is set in a different location. The Bamboo home path is configured in <Bamboo_Install>/atlassian-bamboo/WEB-INF/classes/bamboo-init.properties.

I hope that helps you to move forward in this migration process.

Thank you for the info.

Already figured out about the ports.

Yes, i knew for port 8085, changed it, did not knew about 8007, while starting, i got the error, changed that also. I am running 2 instances on the same server.

Thanks for JDK info, i will install new Java and update setenv.sh.
