  • I got System Error - org.apache.velocity.exception.MethodInvocationException: Invocation of method 'isShowSignUp' in class com.atlassian.confluence.user.actions.LoginAction threw exception java.lang.NullPointerException at /login.vm

I got System Error - org.apache.velocity.exception.MethodInvocationException: Invocation of method 'isShowSignUp' in class com.atlassian.confluence.user.actions.LoginAction threw exception java.lang.NullPointerException at /login.vm

I installed Atlassian confluence server on a rhel 6.5 based server.
This error message below just popped up after I entered a evaluation licence key( and refresh).

 

  • Oops - an error has occurred

 System Error

A system error has occurred — our apologies!
