How to unlock Bitbucket server from maintenance mode if I lost the authentication token?

Hi everyone

I was trying to test whether an automatic-system-backup task was configured correctly on Jenkins ci server.

Unfortunately, It seems that I have accidentally abort the task at the time after Bitbucket server was locked for maintenance, but before the time Bitbucket backup client prints out the authentication token to screen.

The console of Jenkins merely print out message below:

2016-02-05 16:29:10,095 INFO  [main] c.a.b.i.b.client.spring.SpringMain Initializing
2016-02-05 16:29:15,390 INFO  [main] c.a.b.i.b.c.RestBitbucketService Using Bitbucket 4.1.0
2016-02-05 16:29:18,370 INFO  [main] c.a.b.i.b.client.DefaultBackupClient Contacting Bitbucket


Thus , I don't have the authentication token to unlock Bitbucket server from maintenance mode. And I don't know which place should I search for the authentication token either.

How to unlock Bitbucket server from maintenance mode and recover it gracefully in situation like this?

I am using Bitbucket backup client 2.0.0 to connect Bitbucket server 4.1.0.


Thank you!

I have resolve this issue.

I found out that the log file of Bitbucket server is located at the log folder inside Bitbucket home directory.
