BitBucket Server 5.7.0 - Changing context path in bitbucket.properties has no effect

I did a fresh install of BBS 5.7.0 in an AWS instance.  I connected it to a PostgreSQL database,  so it created the bitbucket.properties file automatically and populated it with the JDBC connection info.

I want to change the context path for BBS so that the URL is "http://localhost:7990/bitbucket", instead of the default "http://localhost:7990".  So I added this line to bitbucket.properties:

server.context-path=/bitbucket

I restarted BBS, and the URL "http://localhost:7990/bitbucket" gives the 404 page, while the URL "http://localhost:7990" still takes me to the main page of the app.

From the documentation that I read, the change that I made should be enough to update the context path.  Did I miss something?

After shutting everything down for the night and bringing it back up this morning, it is now working as expected.
