How to change Bamboo from running in console to running as a service?

When we started setting up Bamboo we were running it in console. We have recently had issues with that setup and would like it to run as a service without resetting up our configurations. I installed the service and started it. I can access the bamboo page, but when I try to access a plan I get an internal server error. I don't know if there are necessary steps to migrate it to a service or I am doing something wrong. Any advice would be very much appreciated.

If you are running on a Windows environment, Atlassian provides the script to setup Bamboo as a service. 

If you are running on a *nix environment, check here on the process of how to setup a service.


Take a look at your Bamboo logs to identify the exact reason for the Internal Server error.
