CentOS 7 Support for Confluence

Is there any official support for CentOS 7 for Confuence? I used this, as "CentOS" was they only linux you test on. However, it seems to not work with "Bare Min" install. It only seems to be listening on IPv6 and not IPv4 ports by default.

That's correct, the world needs to move to IPv6, so CentOS tends to default to it.

I'm not actually sure of the IPv6 support in Confluence, I seem to remember it was buggy last time I used it (but it was Confluence 3), and all my clients are still using IPv4, so I've not done any testing recently on 6, and I don't know if it's IPv6 ready.

Simple trick though - You can force it on to IPv4 by adding -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack-true to the setenv.sh file.

Adding "-Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true" to the end of the first Java prefix line fixed this issue.
