Hi Prashanth,

The error you're quoting is a very generic one that indicates that something else went wrong before it that prevents Bitbucket Server from starting. That said I'd look in the logs for any errors that occur after starting Bitbucket Server and look at them one-by-one to see what may be wrong.

Hi Prashanth, that error has been documented at Bitbucket Server can't be started and SpringMVC dispatcher could not be started. Did you have a look at that already?

Also, keep in mind that Bitbucket 5 is a major upgrade so make sure you read Bitbucket Server upgrade guide before continuing.

Hope that helps!


Thanks,Ana for the link , let me do it again and will get back to you!
