Hi @肖星星 ,

Welcome to Atlassian community. 

It seems as though the stop Confluence script is unable to find the PID to terminate thus being unable to stop Confluence. There are additional options in stop Confluence, such as:

  1. Service Confluence status | stop | start
    1. status checks the status of the service
    2. stop will stop the service
    3. start will start the service

So please check if confluence was already stopped when you attempted to stop. If you wish to manually terminate Confluence:

  1. ps -ef | grep confluence.   This will return the PID of Confluence if running, ensure you located the Confluence service and not the database connections.
  2. Kill -9 PID

These 2 option should allow for you to end the service gracefully or close on-demand.

I hope you find this helpful and it assists with shutting down your Confluence service.
