Issue upgrading from Bitbucket 4.14 to 6.7

I have a Bitbucket instance on EC2 with an RDS DB. I am running 4.14.14 and looking to upgrade to the latest version 6.7.1.


I setup a test environment to perform the upgrade. After the upgrade I am getting "Your Atlassian instance is not running"


I can see that the process is running. I think maybe the server,xml migration might be missing something? Other than that I am stumped.


Here are the steps I ran:


1) Created AMI from existing EC2 instance 
2) Launched new EC2 instance from AMI 
3) Built new RDS instacne from snapshot
4) Adjusted hostname for URL using:
sudo /opt/atlassian/bin/
5) Confirmed site was reachable
6) Performed a database migration to the new database
7) Performed a yum update and rebooted
8) Confirmed everything was in working order

9)Bitbucket update check for 6.7.1 showed:
- Push Email Notifier: Incompatible
- Atlassian REST API Browser: Update available (performed update)
- Bitbucket Server Webhook to Jenkins: Disable and update add-on after server upgrade (disabled)
- My Branches: Disable and update add-on after server upgrade (disabled)
2) Downloaded atlassian-bitbucket-6.7.1-x64.bin to /tmp
3) Upgrades below version 5 require a migration from server.xml to
Added these lines to /media/atl/bitbucket/shared/
4) Stopped bitbucket (/opt/atlassian/bitbucket/4.14.4/bin/
5) sudo chmod +x /tmp/atlassian-bitbucket-6.7.1-x64.bin
6) Ran upgrade
