Confluence install failing

Hello,

Trying to install confluence on Ubuntu 13.04 with Postgresql 9.3.

I get this when I go to the confluence site:

HTTP Status 404 -


type Status report

message

description The requested resource () is not available.


Apache Tomcat/6.0.35

Poking around on the logs I see this:

-- The end ---

I created a 'confluence' database initially, started the setup wizard and it failed. So I googled it and found somebody suggesting dropping the database and trying it again. Now I get this problem.

Any suggestions?

Thank you!

Hi Thomas,

I would like to reccomend you to verify your database connection parameters specially your credentials on <CONFLUENCE-HOME>/confluence.cfg.xml.

I would also recommend you to make sure that your <CONFLUENCE-HOME> directory has write permission.

If your problem perissts please check for Cause in your Atlassian-Confluence.log file and send it here.

Cheers,

Saleh
