Hello, the error you are posting reports it is caused by:

java.lang.IllegalStateException: Spring Application context has not been set

There are several possible causes:

  1. The user running Confluence does not have write permissions to the home folder defined in <install>/confluence/WEB-INF/classes/confluence-init.properties or the install directory.
  2. You are running Confluence as the root user or if you have an application firewall enabled (SeLinux or AppArmor).
  3. The database driver is not located in the <install>/confluence/WEB-INF/lib folder or you are using a database version that is incompatible with the bundled driver.
  4. The hostname of the server can not be resolved.
  5. The server does not have enough memory during installation to set up the database, and restarts return this error.
  6. After upgrading the OS, the installation directory might become defective.
  7. The Confluence database is not configured correctly with permissions.
  8. The file confluence.cfg.xml is corrupt.

Each possible cause has a resolution listed on this article: 

Confluence does not start due to Spring Application context has not been set

Please work through the resolutions until you can start Confluence successfully.

I hope you will have time to update this thread afterward to let the Community know which resolution works for you.
