HTTP Status 500 - unexpected setup type initial

Platform Operations Oct 09, 2015

We rebooted our Production Confluence Server. On restart, when we try to bring up the Web service, we are prompted for the License key. On entering the license key, we are getting the following error

HTTP Status 500 - unexpected setup type initial

Hello there,

The fact that the instance is prompting for the license key makes me wonder you might have lost the home-directory setting, since the file that contains the license key information and setup status is the confluence.cfg.xml, which is located inside this directory.

I suggest you confirm that nothing has been changed regarding the path of the home-directory. In case you have moved it to a different folder, for example, you'll need to update the path inside the confluence.init.properties file which is located inside the install-directory/confluence/WEB-INF/classes folder.

Thanks!

Regards,
LM
