Trying to start Bitbucket with init.d script

I have set up Bitbucket on a Vagrant VM, with Ubuntu 14.04. I'm trying to add an init.d script to auto start it when vagrant is loaded.

I modified the script found here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/bitbucketserver/running-bitbucket-server-as-a-linux-service-776640157.html#RunningBitbucketServerasaLinuxservice-jsw. Only change was to put in the directories as they stand on my server.

I put it into /etc/init.d/bitbucket, as bitbucket.sh. I chmodded it to 755. I run the script as "sudo /etc/init.d/bitbucket/bitbucket.sh start", and it works fine. But running "sudo service bitbucket start" gives me "permission denied".

Any thoughts? I would normally assume that if I can run the script manually, then it should be able to run as a service.

Shouldn't have put the script in a Bitbucket directory, just a script in init.d. Works fine.
