can't log on to confluence

I installed confluence on a hyper-v host. The address dhcp gave me was The physical port died so i changed to to another port. After changing the port i was issued a new address, I then reset the address to static and gave it the address. I am now unable to log back on to confluence. I can ping the server and ssh to it.

How are you trying to log on? I am assuming you cannot access the login page at all, please let me know if that is not the case.

I am guessing you are using the IP and port, for example:

 Please ssh to the server and try a wget on the localhost and port, to see if Confluence serves the login page - here is an example of what the output looks like if the instance is running:

wget http://localhost:8090

Resolving localhost... ::1, fe80::1,

If you can get a response locally then we will have narrowed it down to a networking issue.
