Confluence system error after setup

I've attempted to set up a confluence server 3 times. Each time resulting in the same system error. Not really sure what is the root cause for this problem.

I am able to successfully set up the server. I even was able to create users and surf around to make sure everything works. A few mins later someone attempted to access confluence from their terminal, they encountered a system error. When I reload the page I was on, it now has a system error.

Anyone seen this before?

Quite a few times I'm afraid.  There are several things that can cause it, and the best starting point to troubleshoot is https://confluence.atlassian.com/confkb/java-lang-runtimeexception-error-rendering-template-for-decorator-root-in-a-page-217743738.html
