Confluence doesnt start!!

Hi There,

We are working on windows server 2012 R2 and I installed Jira and Bitbucket on same server. I installed confluence too but it doesn’t start. I added log file content below. Please help.

This suggests something is blocking access to Tomcat on the server.

Have a look further up the log for other errors and check your firewall rules and networking.
