Confluence Installation causes white browser screen.

When trying to install Confluence (5.4.3) the browser screen goes white (it would appear the page times out) when trying to complete the database stage (after I've successfully entered all the databse details and submitted the page).

This is for mysql.

The confluence.cfg.xml file goes from:

<confluence-configuration>

<setupStep>setupdbchoice-start</setupStep>

<setupType>custom</setupType>

to:

<confluence-configuration>

<setupStep>setuppaths</setupStep>

<setupType>custom</setupType>

<buildNumber>4732</buildNumber>

<properties>

Which indicates it successfully passed the stage.

When I try to go to Confluence in my browser everything looks fine and I'm at the next stage.

My question is, are there any settings that will stop this apparent 'time out' I'm seeing in the browser.

I'm getting the following fatal error:

2014-03-02 23:47:45,031 FATAL [http-8090-8] [atlassian.spring.container.SpringContainerContext] getComponent Spring Application context has not been set

Along with a few warnings:

Hey Andrew,

This error can occur if the user running Confluence does not have write permissions to the home folder defined in <install>/confluence/WEB-INF/classes/confluence-init.properties.

This can also happen if you are running Confluence as the root user.

To fix this bad boy, do not run Confluence as root, and ensure that the user running Confluence has full read and write access to the home folder. This can be set by running chmod -R with the appropriate permissions, to apply them recursively to each sub folder.

Cheers,
WZ
