When I try to start bamboo with the bamboo user, it simply doesn't start. When I look in catalina.out.log, I get the following error and I can't access bamboo via its url:

However, when I start bamboo with sudo, it works. I can't run bamboo using sudo because some scripts in my deployments need to be run without sudo.
