Could not resolve placeholder 'bitbucket.home' in value "${bitbucket.home}" Edited

I'm trying to restore Bitbucket Server to use a newly created DB. I'm restoring from Windows to Ubuntu and using the Bitbucket Server Backup Client. I have created new empty home directory and database (MySQL). When I run Restore Client (java -jar /path/bitbucket-restore-client.jar /path/bitbucket-20180719-104303-489.tar) I received an error:

"ERROR The application could not be started. An unexpected error prevented the Spring ApplicationContext from being created. Details of the error follow. org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanDefinitionStoreException: Invalid bean definition with name 'appHome' defined in class path resource [META-INF/spring/comm on-spring.xml]: Could not resolve placeholder 'bitbucket.home' in value "${bitbucket.home}"; nested exception is java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Could not resolve placeholder 'bitbucket.home' in value "${bitbucket.home}"

I have configured parameters on the file (including bitbucket.home=/var/atlassian/application-data/bitbucket)

I had to use the following command:

java  -Dbitbucket.home="/path/to/bitbuckethome" -jar /path/bitbucket-restore-client.jar /path/bitbucket-20180719-104303-489.tar

When I set "bitbucket.home" in"" file, it doesn't work.
