I'm attempting to install the latest version of Confluence (5.4.3) via the unpackage method in linux.
I'm looking to find or write my own init script so I can start the service using the command "service start confluence".
I'm a little confused about if I should be using start-confluence.sh or startup.sh within my init script.
start-confluence.sh # executes either catalina.sh or startup.sh
startup.sh # executes catalina.sh
catalina.sh # doe the real work, also reads in data from setenv.sh & setclasspath.sh

The information I have so far appears to be conflicing, can anyone give me any insights into this?
All the articles you mentioned has a valid information.
For additional information, running startup.sh will execute the application using the current user. But start-confluence.sh will execute the application using the user mentioned in user.sh. If the user.sh doesn't specify any user, it will execute the application using the current user.
This affects the directory/file permission when running Confluence.
