We installed Bitbucket via the Linux installer and left all of the defaults. Git and all of the other prerequisites are already installed on the server. Attempting to start Bitbucket using the service "service atlbitbucket start" results in an error message in the log file and then nothing more. The java process is up and running but the web application is never available. There are no issues with firewall or SELinux config. The following is the last message in the $HOME/log/atlassian-bitbucket.log.

If you followed the installation guide then the permissions on the top level folder should be set recursively for user atlbitbucket. That error message doesn't mean anything at the point of the install as it will be there since the Bitbucket setup has not been completed.
