Starting automatically doesn't work.

I am trying to figure out, following this article why confluence does not start on startup.  Any help would be appreciated.

I have verified the script, letter by letter.  And there is not mistakes in the file.  It just doesn't appear to execute.  I can't find any record in the logs that it has run.

I did discover that the "upstart" log directory did not exist and when I tried to run initctl, the system stated that upstart was not installed.  So I did install upstart, but that did not seem to make a difference either.  There were also other .conf files in the proper directory (etc/init) like upstart was installed and working.  It is kinda strange.

Any help would be appreciated.

I have discovered that "upstart" has not been supported since version 15 of Ubuntu server and that Confluence documentation is severly lacking in it's Linux instruction set.  It is neither complete nor accurate.  You will likely spend a lot of time doing your own research into it and starting from scratch once or twice.
