So, I've been able to install confluence from an ISO delivery of Ubuntu 18 in a testing environment using an ISO installation of the OS, but when I sat down in our production environment to validate the installation earlier this week, I was unable to operate the Confluence server after installation on our PXE delivered Ubuntu server.
I have been requested for the packages necessary. from our PXE server administrator, for the installation/operation of Confluence in a Linux/Ubuntu environment so our PXE delivery can be added to, to provide the requirements of the Atlassian servers, or I can install them second-hand.
