Cannot start Bamboo with bamboo user

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.

I am using bamboo 5.7.2

Hello Etienne,

Thank you for your question.

Please, make sure the "bamboo user" you are referring to has full permission in <bamboo-install> and <bamboo-home> directories.

Since you are able to run Bamboo using sudo and not with a non-admin user, it seems there is some issue with this user.

Kind regards,

Hi, was there a resolution to this? I'm encountering the same issue on Bamboo 5.7.2.
