In lack of any useful information, I assume you:

  • are running linux.
  • are running the application as root
  • are running the application server in /opt/atlassian/Bitbucket
  • are logged in as root

Steps:

  • shut down Bitbucket
  • add a user: "adduser bitbucket"
  • set the correct permissions on the application directory: "chown -R bitbucket:bitbucket /opt/atlassian/bitbucket/"
  • login as bitbucket: su - bitbucket 
  • start the applicationserver back up.
