Starting Bamboo as a service in Centos 7

Hi, 

I tried following the instructions at:

https://confluence.atlassian.com/bamboo/running-bamboo-as-a-linux-service-416056046.html

 

But the script on that page requires an argument (start, restart, stop), but this is not specified anywhere in the procedure.

And my installation is not starting upon boot, but I can manually start with that script.

I've checked the catalina.out file, but it doesn't even get that far - 

How can I troubleshoot this?  

How do you enter the "start" argument with the start of the system?

It's not necessary to reference these explicitly anywhere. They're standard commands issued by the underlying OS service manager once the service has been registered.

Rather than troubleshooting the systemv service, for CentOS 7 I'd recommend setting it up as a systemd service using these instructions instead:

It's the standard on modern distros and more robust. I'll get the above instructions linked in the official doc too.

Hope this helps :)

Hi Jason,

 

It sounds like Bamboo isn't starting when you reboot the system. Did you run sudo /sbin/chkconfig --add bamboo, which configures Bamboo to start on system startup?

Hi Christian, yes.  But as I mentioned - it makes sense that it will fail, as the script requires an argument, and none is provided upon reboot, as far as i can see.

Hey Jeremy - 

Perfect!  It all works, and things make a lot more sense to me now.  

Thanks for your help.

Best,

Jason

Also would suggest noting that in the first link I tried.  And add "centos7" in the description of the correct link.

You're welcome! :) 

I'll absolutely add CentOS 7 into the description too.
