Change bamboo.home does not work


somehow in the past the bamboo.home variable was set to the same directory (ISS/BAMBOO) than the application was installed. So we tried to change it but we had no luck. What we did:

Stop Bamboo (running on sles)

moved XML-DATA, artifacts, logs, backups, index and temo to /ISS/BAMBOO-DATA

Changed the variable in

Started Bamboo

Now the setup wizard comes up! What was wrong?

Thanks in advance,

Make sure to move the bamboo.cfg.xml as well. If you do a clean installation of the app on another area - you can see which files/directories should be moved.

Hi @Carsten Horlacher, is to define where <bamboo-home> will be, however, in the same way you can specify the directory path to Artifacts during Bamboo's installation through the UI, post Bamboo installation you will find <bamboo-home>/bamboo.cfg.xml in which describe where files are stored:

    <property name="">${bambooHome}/artifacts</property>
    <property name="">${bambooHome}/xml-data/configuration</property>

So if you want to copy Artifacts and place them outside <bamboo-home> directory, you should update <bamboo-home>/bamboo.cfg.xml providing the correct path for it. The same applies to the other properties.

Kind regards,
