Wrong path to JAVA_HOME or JRE_HOME /bin/bin/java: not found

I am trying to install Bamboo and am having problems starting:


./ -fg

Server startup logs are located in /opt/atlassian/atlassian-bamboo-6.10.3/bin/logs/catalina.out

Bamboo Server Edition
Version : 6.10.3

If you encounter issues starting or stopping Bamboo Server, please see the Troubleshooting guide at

Using CATALINA_BASE: /opt/atlassian/atlassian-bamboo-6.10.3
Using CATALINA_HOME: /opt/atlassian/atlassian-bamboo-6.10.3
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: /opt/atlassian/atlassian-bamboo-6.10.3/temp
Using JRE_HOME: /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.11.0-openjdk-amd64/bin
Using CLASSPATH: /opt/atlassian/atlassian-bamboo-6.10.3/bin/bootstrap.jar:/opt/atlassian/atlassian-bamboo-6.10.3/bin/tomcat-juli.jar
/opt/atlassian/atlassian-bamboo-6.10.3/bin/ 1: exec: /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.11.0-openjdk-amd64/bin/bin/java: not found

I can’t understand why the start script adds bin / java to the JAVA_HOME path again.

/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.11.0-openjdk-amd64/bin/bin/java: not found

@Alexis Robert , 

Thank you, this guide is not complete enough. I did the same as the guide for Jira, and I did it.

I skipped some steps that are described in the guide for Jira, but they are not in the guide for Bamboo

Hi @Иван_Пузырёв , 


you should configure your JAVA_HOME to point to the main folder of the JDK, as the Bamboo script will automatically add the "/bin/java" to JAVA_HOME. 


Let me know if you have any questions, 



Hi, thanks for the feedback.

What does this mean "main folder"?

echo $JRE_HOME

I think that in all environment variables the correct values ​​are indicated

I get it. The problems were really with setting user paths for various users, including root.
Is there a guide for setting up a user for Bamboo and permissions to run?
