Anybody know how to specify what user to install confluence? I'm running into issues with Confluence and chose to reinstall to start at a known baseline. Everytime I run the Confluence installation (.bin file) it creates a new user "ConfluenceX" where X is an auto-incrementing number. How do I specify, to the installation, to use an existing user rather than creating a new one?
Confluence runs as the user it is invoked under
You wil need to login/su to the account for the confluence user. You can also use a sticky bit or sudo on 'nix systems.
You can also delete the users that the old installation created. All it's doing is going through the list of users and looking for the first free one called "confluence".
Also, it only does this when you install as root - if you swap to a user you want to install as, it won't try to create new users. You do need to be careful to prepare any directories you want to install under though - it needs full read/write/execute to all installation directories for the current user
