How do I change the Windows service account

Brett May I'm New Here Dec 04, 2019

I am building our BitBucket server.  I used the Windows installer.  After the install, everything worked.  Now I need to change the Windows service account that BitBucket uses.  After I changed it from the default .\atlbitbucket, I can no longer connect via web interface and the BitBucket service will not start.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.

@Brett May , Not a Bitbucket Expert but did you follow this process for setting up the Service Account?

Also, is there anything in the logs showing an error when the service tries to start?

Also have a look at this thread, https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Bitbucket-questions/How-to-change-user-account-for-Windows-Bitbucket-service/qaq-p/167763. It might be that the ACLs on Bitbucket home directory is causing it.
