I installed the latest trial version of Confluence and while I was trying to obtain a trial key, confluence froze. I restarted the service and received the following error and as shown in the screenshot. Known issue?conf error.jpg
HTTP Status 500 - java.lang.IllegalStateException: Spring Application context has not been set
I believe there was some problem while writing the configuration file in Confluence at the startup. I suggest to:
1) Shutdown Confluence
2) Go to my.atlassian.com and retrieve an evaluation license from there
3) Remove the Confluence_home directory (The one that contains the confluence.cfg.xml file)
4) Start Confluence again
5) Provide the license from my.atlassian.com at the initial screen to setup confluence once more
I hope this helps.
