Confluence 3.5.11-STD accessing HTTP configuration interface results in Timeout.

Hello all,

I ve deployed Confluence 3.5.11-STD on my Gentoo Linux server but I cannot access the configuration setup via HTTP.

I already have an apache2 running so I changed ports according to the installation guide and I also changed from localhost to the url I m using (e.g

To access the site I m using www."mysite".net:8090 as stated in documentation but I m getting "The connection has timed out" when trying to access it.

Looking at the logs and it seems Tomcat started successfully and a netstat -ntap | grep 8090 shows the java process is listening on the port.

* I have no iptables blocking the traffic.

* <Engine defaultHost="" ..

* Host name=""

output of ./

So it seems its only accessible from localhost at startup, is this intentional or can it be modified?

I used Lynx to access http://localhost:port and I got to the configuration page.
