Stuck on screen "Please wait while Bamboo sets up your instance" while installing Bamboo.

Hi Team,

I am trying to install Bamboo on my machine. I have followed steps given in below link:

Upto step 5 all went fine. In step 6, I ran bin\start-bamboo.bat command and browsed http://localhost:8085/to access Bamboo instance. After entering the temporary license number and clicking on 'Express Installation', system shows "Please wait while Bamboo sets up your instance" and remains there for long time. Dont know if the installation is going on or stucking somewhere. Please help me.

Thanks in advanced.

Hi Kaustubh,

How long was the "long time" you mentioned? The Setup Wizard might take a while in each step.

You can check for any errors that might have happened at <BAMBOO_HOME>/logs/atlassian-bamboo.log.

If there aren't any errors, it would be just a matter of waiting a little more.

Kind regards,

Hi Felipe,

It was more than 5/6 hrs. And the logs are not showing any errors. The log file is full of below logs...

Hi Did you find a solution for this ? I am facing exactly the same thing 

Did you change the base URL in the first setup page? Maybe due to it looking in the wrong spot.  See my post below.

Did anyone have any idea about this error...?

i'm facing this buffering screen too which is too much to take.

For posterity, my solution on Bamboo 4.3.3...   Go to the URL that you setup in the first setup page as the base URL.

I had the same thing when initial from scratch install on mysql DB; a spinning widget saying the database, etc was being setup and asking me to wait.  The only messages in the bamboo/logs/atlassian-bamboo.log was basically the page trying to refresh and posting 2-3 messages at a time:

2017-10-18 16:55:10,482 DEBUG [qtp109647522-14] [AccessLogFilter] END: POST 126012kb-82kb 3ms
2017-10-18 16:55:12,501 INFO [qtp109647522-12] [AccessLogFilter] POST http://172................
2017-10-18 16:55:12,504 INFO [qtp109647522-12] [ExecAndWaitWithJSONStatusUpdateInterceptor] B...........



WHY does going to base URL work??

I'm now recall that I changed the base url in the first setup page from the default of and I'm guessing that as the setup attempts to 'refresh' that it looks in the wrong place.  Looks like a bug where the default URL you enter in the first setup page should be used for checking status.

FYI, I had to do this a second time during the setup.
