AWS ELB Health Checks preventing Confluence install

I am trying to install Confluence on a AWS linux server. The ELB performs automatic health checks. Originally, we had the health checks pointing to the Confluence /status page. This works great, if Confluence is up and running. During the install process, the /status page can not be seen by the ELB (and therefore, does not return a response of 200). Because the ELB is not getting a response of 200, I can not get Confluence to render in a browser so I can walk through the setup process.

Has anyone installed Confluence with an ELB? How do you get around the health checks?

We resolved this by pointing the health checks to the TCP Port while we did the install. Once complete, we re-pointed back to the Confluence forgot password page.

We're running into the same issue. Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks for that. However the version of Confluence we were using (5.7.1) apparently doesn't have a /status page.

We ended up upgrading to 5.9.10 and dumping in the data from an old installation instead.
