You should have been sent to a /setup page when it first opened, and been prompted to create an admin user (and provide a username and password).

If you were taken tot he home page, then you probably used an existing STASH_HOME or BITBUCKET_HOME directory where there was already an admin user set up (in which case, use the username and password that you previous set up).

If you install Bitbucket Server as a plugin developer, there is an "admin" user with password "admin" created for you.

Thanks for your quick response. I did an fresh installation on new amazon machine . I installed in this way 


[root@ip-10-0-1-239 ~]# chmod 777 -R /home/ec2-user/atlassian-bitbucket-4.5.2-x64.bin .
[root@ip-10-0-1-239 ~]# /home/ec2-user/atlassian-bitbucket-4.5.2-x64.bin .

Where should Bitbucket be installed?


Default location for Bitbucket home directory

The location for Bitbucket data.
This will be the default location for repositories, plugins, and other data.

Ensure that this location is not used by another Bitbucket installation.

Configure which ports Bitbucket will use.

Bitbucket requires two TCP ports that are not being used by any other

The HTTP port is where users will access Bitbucket through their browsers.
The control port is used to start and stop Bitbucket.
HTTP Port Number

Control Port Number


For a production server we recommend that you run Bitbucket as a
Windows/Linux service because Bitbucket will restart automatically when the
computer restarts.

The instllation got finished

In that case, your first visit in a browser will ask you to set up the admin account (I installed it using the same route last night) with username, name, and password.  Unless you installed it over an existing install as Adam says, where it'll be using credentials you set up before.

If you were logged into something like Answers recently, or have been installing other Atlassian stuff, you might find the browser pre-filled some stuff for you as you went, and you skipped over the screen (as that's exactly what I did yesterday).  So you might want to try the credentials you use for JIRA or Answers etc
