Not able to start Bamboo server



Today is my first day with Bamboo server and trying to set it up for exploring something.

I use Windows 10 and the bamboo ZIP Archive (.zip) ( not the installer).

I have set JAVA_HOME (and there is no space in the path  where Java is installed ) and I have a JDK which is supported for Bamboo. I have set the  Bamboo home directory etc.

When I run start-bamboo.bat from the Bamboo installation directory , it do not run successfuly

it do not throw any error too, so it bit difficult for me to trouble shoot the issue.

Attached a pic of cmd from where I am trying to run bamboo server

Please let me know if you have any idea or tips for trouble shooting

HI @Musaffir Puthukudi

Give the full rights to the Bamboo Home directory and see.

You can see the error details in <Bamboo_home>/logs/atlassian-bamboo.log file.

Hi @Yogesh Mude

The full rights already present and its just a folder that I created

Shouldn't it work then ?


Could you please see the log files for error details

it do not start up at all and Bamboo home directory is empty.

So no log file also generated. So thats the problem in trouble shooting the issue :( 

See the Catalina file for the below location.

<Bamboo_Installation>/logs/catalina file.

I see that nothing in Bamboo_Installation>/logs/  :( 

Please note I have used bamboo ZIP Archive (.zip) ( and not the installer)
