I just upgraded Bitbucket Server from 4.0.1 to 4.1 and it lost its connection to the database (it comes up on the setup screen). The database is intact, so how do I tell Bitbucket where it is?
Hi Thiago. I did point the installer at the old BITBUCKET_HOME, I did use the upgrade workflow, and I did try running it again. I've discovered since I originally posted that everything works perfectly if I launch Bitbucket Server using the Windows bat file. I'm only experiencing a problem if I run it as a Windows service.
Have you managed to find a pernament solution here? I have the same issue - well maybe similar. I have installed Bitbucket 4.8.5 and recently, after a server restart Bitbucket service woke up but was not able to restore database connection. It works fine when I start Bitbucket from .bat but not as Windows Service. I tried to reinstall service - did not help either...
I have not, unfortunately, and I've performed several upgrades since my initial post. I'm still launching from the BAT file, which works perfectly. It's extremely annoying but at least I have a workaround, especially since Atlassian has made no effort to follow up to my last post almost a year ago.
It's a pity. I found it as a possible solution, but it did not help either... https://confluence.atlassian.com/bitbucketserverkb/change-bitbucket_home-when-installed-as-a-windows-service-779171532.html
It looks like Bitbucket installed as a Windows service is not reading BITBUCKET_HOME even passed as a service startup option. Whenever I start Bitbucket as Windows service I got redirected to the setup site, while starting it from .bat runs my instance without any problems. Ecactly what Craig described earlier. bitbucket.png
Looks like Atlassian has given up on this once again. Tune in a year from now when the next user experiences this problem and the same support advice is given again.
In the meantime, this is such a significant problem that I've been referring people to GItLab when they ask for advice on a Git solution. (Unfortunately we're integrated with Jira, so we have to deal with the issue as best we can.)
In that case, have a look at the article below:
How did you install the service? Did you choose to have the service installed as part of the installation process of 4.0.1?
We’ve been building a plugin to integrate Bitbucket Server and Jenkins CI, and I’m excited to announce that our alpha is ready to download and install. It lets you seamlessly configure a Jenkins job ...
