Cannot access port 8090 for confluence 5.5 in linux

Hi Jerin,

I'd run the following command against your Linux box to see if indeed Confluence is running under 8090:

netstat -ntpl

Also, take a look in the atlassian-confluence.log to see if you can find an error there.

What does your atlassian-confluence.log say? And the catalina.out file too?

What does "netstat -plant | grep 8090" get back? (Or, a lot less detailed, but should be independent of unix flavour, just "netstat -a | grep 8090"

But seriously, log files are your friend.

No port 8090 is not running. I did this:

<address>vi /etc/sysconfig/iptables</address>

Append rule as follows:

<address>-A INPUT -m state –state NEW -m tcp -p tcp –dport port_number -j ACCEPT</address><address>-make sure you change the port_number to actual number (8090 or 8088)</address>

Restart iptables:

<address># /etc/init.d/iptables restart</address>

Verify that port is open:

<address># netstat -tulpn | less</address><address> </address><address> </address><address>still not working. What to do?</address>
