I have the following problem:

I downloaded the tag.gz archive on my Mac OS, created a new "bitbucket-home" folder on my desktop and set the path of the home folder to the "BITBUCKET_HOME=" variable inside the "" file.Started Bitbucket by executing "sudo sh" inside the terminal, went to "localhost:7990" using Safari and saw bitbucket loading up.After less than 20 seconds it crashed, giving me some sort of Spring error as seen below:Screenshot 2022-07-05 at 14.52.58.pngI checked the terminal and it said this:

Hello @Georgi Krumov 

When you set up Bitbucket on your system it is recommended to create a dedicated `bitbucket` user and run bitbucket as such a user.

There's a KB article that explains the problem in more detail.

I personally run all Bitbucket server instances on docker on my local machine (MacOS) - It's super easy and no headaches guaranteed.

Let me know how you go.

Cheers Ulrich

Hello @Ulrich Kuhnhardt _IzymesCo_ 


I'll try the first method for now, since I haven't really used docker before.Not sure how to do this right away either, but I'll dig into it.

Thank you for your time :)
