Fatal error when attempting to secure Bitbucket Server with Tomcat using SSL

I followed the steps in the following link: First, I changed the base URL for the bitbucket server then I used an existing jks file and updated the as instructed. The problem is that when I use the new URL I get the following error: 

  • The database, as currently configured, is not accessible. Database may be already in use: "Locked by another process". Possible solutions: close all other connection(s); use the server mode [90020-176]

Also to give some background I am using an internal H2 database and am unsure how to close all other connections.

Unix-Like Server

If you using unix like server (eg Centos, Linux etc..)try to kill the java process; type the below on terminal  to get the Bitbucket process id(PID)

  • ps aux | grep java
  • Kill -9  PID
  • Then restart the bit-bucket application

On Windows server to be specific 2012

  • Open task manager and right click on the process you want to kill, and select Go to details
  • Find the highlighted executable
  • Use it in your taskkill command, eg. taskkill /f /t /im process.exe
  • then restart the Bitbucket application

Try and give  feed back  and once you are able to  solve problem is time to have a self manage  database server.

Best regards,


Hi Moses,

Thanks for the help. I tried the steps and it works. I am going to move to a self managed database server soon.
