Could not load bootstrap from environment (java.lang.NullPointerException) Edited

On any server / Bamboo configuration server goes down after admin user creation.

New server, clean install Bamboo 6.3.1, empty PostreSQL database, new Bamboo home directory.

There is an exception in atlassian-bamboo.log

Hi, it's existing issue https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/BAM-19589

Looks like your Bamboo DB doesn't match Bamboo home folder and exception occurs when Bamboo tries to show message about it. Try to check what's the version in BAMBOO_HOME/bamboo.cfg.xml and what's in DB table BANDANA, record with a key bamboo.db.version 

In bamboo.cfg.xml:

<buildNumber>60306</buildNumber>

And there is no such record with key bamboo.db.version in database.

Can you please describe your steps? I just tried to install 6.3.1 from scratch on PostgreSQL and it was installed.

Do you use import from previous versions of Bamboo?

It can sounds strange, but it is clean install on newly-created VPS with 1 Gb RAM and CentOS x86_64 installed.

I just tried to follow express installation (with internal Bamboo DB) and result is the same. I can attach video with installation process.

Also, tried to install Bamboo server on Ubuntu 16 and has the same result. 

Igor, can you please check if you have line 

Setup complete

in Bamboo logs before exception occurs.

Also if you can, please create an issue at support.atlassian.com so our Support engineers can review logs and identify a reason of the issue.

Yes, logs contains such line:

INFO [finishsetupBackgroundThread] [DefaultSetupPersister] Setup complete

Okay, I'll create an issue.

Hello, we currently have a Bamboo 5.10 version using an Oracle database.
I wanted to test an upgrade to the latest Bamboo 6.3 so installed a trial version locally, exported/imported Oracle data on a new schema then updated the bamboo.cfg.xml to connect to this db.

Once I start bamboo I get the following - similar to Igor's one - error:

Could you please  let me know if this can be related with the same issue?

Thanks,
Jerome

Hi, Jerome!

With my issue I decided to write to the Atlassian support and after few days and logs exchanging we discover my problem cause - memory limits.

So, I think your problem is not related with my issue.

Thank you Igor. Actually I have found this "first step issue" and it was coming from some wrong settings I did. I am now on another issue but it is another story :)

Thanks again for your feedback
