Cannot find file in the evaluation version of BitBucket in linux


I am trying to install an SSL certificate in the BitBucket Application. I am not finding the " file" in my bitbucket home/shared. I am not finding it any where in the installation/ data directory. Am I missing any steps?


I followed

  1. Change to the directory where you downloaded Bitbucket then execute this command to make it executable:

    $ chmod a+x atlassian-Bitbucket-X.X.X-x64.bin

    Where X.X.X is is the Bitbucket version you downloaded.

  2. Run the installer - we recommend using sudo to run the installer as this will create a dedicated account to run Bitbucket and allow you to run Bitbucket as a service.

    $ sudo ./atlassian-Bitbucket-X.X.X-x64.bin
  3. When prompted, choose to start and launch Bitbucket in a browser.
  4. Once installation is complete head to http://localhost:7990 in your browser to begin the setup process.

Hi Anil,

The file is only created when needed by the application, for example, when migrating to an external database, the file will be created if it doesn't exist.

If the file does not exist in $BITBUCKET_HOME/shared feel free to create it and include the SSL configuration that you need. Just make sure that the atlbitbucket user is the owner of the file.
