Getting system error after installing Confluence server

I tried installing Confluence similarly I installed bit bucket and Jira. While installation when I gave my MYSQL DB it started creatting table. It took little more time than expected. Hence I refreshed the page. I get below error.

A system error has occurred — our apologies!

Thanks for sharing the answer with the community. 

This gave me a fatal error "Could not load bootstrap from environment" that stops the server from loading. I do not recommend deleting this folder.

The folder deleted was half the installation, and Arnand re-installed afterwards.

You should delete the folder if you are trying to do a completely clean re-install.
