after upgrade confluence from 3.4.6 to 3.5.13, the screen frozen when tried to rebuild index.

Then I tried to shutdown confluence but with the following error:

I found the workaround in

I could not find the PID file so created a blank one instead, also updated the as show in the above workaround, then execute command stop -force

But system always came up with the following

PID file is empty and has been ignored. connection refused


PID file found but no matching process was found. Stop aborted.

Where can I find the PID for the matching process? Thanks

use command: ps -ef|grep java

the process is already gone, but the confluence process gave me the message and I thought something was wrong.
