(Windows) Bamboo service stops when accessed in browser.

The Bamboo service installed just fine on the server and starts with no issues. Upon attempting to access the application, I get a "Web page not available" and the service stops.

Has anyone else encountered this before?

Stash and Jira services are running great.

It appears that the server port in {BAMBOO-INSTALL}\conf\server.xml was already in use. I changed the value in the xml file to an open port and everything came up. Thanks to all!

I did last month upgrading to 5.1.1.

Navigate to your bamboo install then atlassian-bamboo\WEB-INF\lib.

Look for repeat atlassian-bamboo-*.jar like atlassian-bamboo-agent-bootstrap-5.1.jar & atlassian-bamboo-agent-bootstrap-5.2.jar and remove the older copies.

Only remove the extra ones as not every upgrade has a complete new set.

For instance atlassian-bamboo-agent-elastic-installer-5.0-rc1.jar is in the 5.2 install.

Thanks for the quick response. This is a new install but I did check the directory you mentioned and don't see any files with multiple versions as you described.

Did you run the install as "Run as Administrator"? It doesn't show a failure but I had to Uninstall Service as "Run as Administrator" and Install Service as "Run as Administrator" The Tomcat changes >= 5.1 require elavated prviledges & UAC.

Yes (or at least the Win Server 2003 equivalent, I think). I installed using an admin account. Is this the same as the Vista+ UAC / "Run as Administrator"?
