We have had Confluence successfully running on an Amazon EC2 instance for several months (running Amazon Linux). I recently used CloudWatch/Lambda to schedule start/stop times for the instance so that it is only available during business hours. I also followed this guide so that Confluence starts automatically when the instance starts:
After restart the service does indeed start but when I navigate to the server's address I receive a 404 error, page not found. I get the same error when navigating via the server's elastic IP address.
Running a 'wget' on the server produces this:
wget http://localhost:8090 --2017-04-13 21:55:16-- http://localhost:8090/ Resolving localhost (localhost)... 127.0.0.1 Connecting to localhost (localhost)|127.0.0.1|:8090... connected. HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 404 Not Found 2017-04-13 21:55:16 ERROR 404: Not Found.
I undid the steps outlined in the above article and tried starting Confluence via the start-confluence.sh script, it starts successfully but I am still unable to access it in my browser:
Server startup logs are located in /home/ec2-user/atlassian/confluence/logs/catalina.out Using CATALINA_BASE: /home/ec2-user/atlassian/confluence Using CATALINA_HOME: /home/ec2-user/atlassian/confluence Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: /home/ec2-user/atlassian/confluence/temp Using JRE_HOME: /home/ec2-user/atlassian/confluence/jre/ Using CLASSPATH: /home/ec2-user/atlassian/confluence/bin/bootstrap.jar:/home/ec2-user/atlassian/confluence/bin/tomcat-juli.jar Using CATALINA_PID: /home/ec2-user/atlassian/confluence/work/catalina.pid Tomcat started.
I am afraid that I have exhausted my ability to troubleshoot this by myself. I am hoping someone can help me. I have all the logs and can provide any additional information that may be helpful.
Here is where I would start:
