It looks like the user running the application hasn't got the right permissions to read/write the directories you've told it to install into.

Hey Piotr,

Nic's right. Check this documentation about this error.


Make sure you're also running a supported version of Java. In case you have installed Confluence latest, this should only run on Java 1.8.x.

Please see the supported platforms page for Confluence:
