Confluence Installation on CentOS 7

HI all,

I am currently trying to install Confluence 6.0.2 on a CentOS 7 VM (running on OpenStack)

Details:

OS: CentOS Linux release 7.2.1511 (Core)

CPU: 2vCPU

RAM: 4GB

PostgreSQL: PostgreSQL 9.2.15

 

Installing via the x64 .bin file with defaults, once started, Confluence is not accessible from another machine.

 

So far, I've tried:

Disabling firewalld

Adding -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true to setenv.sh

Increasing -Xmx to 2048m

Confirming I can telnet from another host

I get the following from catalina,out when I restart via init.d

Two things to check

  1. Can you get to it locally?  On the CentOS machine.  If you don't have a gui, then just try a simple wget of the default base url and see if the html you get looks like a login or setup screen
  2. What does the application log say?  Files in <confluence-home>/log
