Unable to install Confluence

Hi,

I'm trying to install Confluence in a Linux hosted machine, through SSH. I'm trying to install it using the binary file, and loged in as the root user.

The installation process seems to complete without any problem (default options) and the installation and data folders are created correctly. Permissions seem fine (there is a up and running JIRA installation and they look pretty similar), but I just can't access the installation wizard from a browser.

I've tried changing the default ports or installation folder, but is not helping at all.

Any help please?

Thanks

Héctor

Ok. I managed to go on with this. Firewall wasn't allowing incoming connections (iptables).

Thanks for your help

Is your port blocked. It should be 8090? Can you check this in your firewall?

what says

netstat -tulpn

and

ps -ef|grep catalina

Do you find the confluence-process there?

And what can you find in the logfile? Any exceptions?

What does "I can't access the installation wizard" actually mean? What are you trying? How far through the install did you run into the problem? Is there an error/warning/blank screen/shouting penguin on screen?

Hi guys, thanks for your quick answers.

@Nic

I mean't 'setup wizard' instead of 'installation wizard' i.e. accessing confluence for the first time from a web browser, after installing it.

It seems the process is running:

Adding also the Jira process (the uid may be a hint, as this one is showing a 'jira' user)
