Moving STASH_HOME out of the installation directory


The person that installed our Stash implementation made STASH_HOME the same as the stash installation directory. I'm trying to move it out to a separate location but have run into some problems.

I moved the directories and file mentioned in from /opt/atlassian/stash into /opt/atlassian/application-data/stash and changed the value of STASH_HOME in When I tried to restart Stash the process crashed before it wrote anything to any log file. Am I missing anything obvious? When I put the files back where they came from the server starts again. (I'm doing this on our dev installation!).

We are using Ubuntu Server.

I have found the problem! We have version 1.3, the lib folder has to stay in the installation directory - the page I mentioned before does say 'As from 2.1' but I missed that.

Great to hear Paul. Nice one.

Hi Paul,

There shouldn't be any problems with that. I've got a bad feeling it might be related to $STASH_HOME/bin/git-hooks which isn't documented. You might want to move that as well and try again. If that's it I'll make sure we update the documentation.

If that doesn't work what happens when you run '' with '-fg' so that the logging goes to the console?
