Today I upgraded Confluence from 5.9 to 5.10.8 on Windows 7 SP1 PostgreSQL 9.2.1 and immediately afterwards I was able to see its pages no problem. I did this upgrade as the first step in advice received here at https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Confluence-questions/Moving-Confluence-PostgreSQL-instance-to-new-Windows-10-laptop/qaq-p/1165727
However, since rebooting, I've been getting "This page can’t be displayed" (Internet Explorer) and "This site can’t be reached" (Chrome) whenever I try to open Confluence using http://localhost:8090/display/P/Home (which is my usual way).

I think I need to set JRE_HOME before trying to install the service again but is that Oracle path to and including java.exe exactly what I need to set it to?
It’s been great to hear from fellow users over the last few weeks about the best tips and fun moments you’ve had working on Confluence since the transition to working remote. I’d love to keep the c...
