http://localhost:8090/setup/setupstart.action does not load

I have made a new confluence server installation (V6.1.2) with all default settings (in Linux).

Everything went well but when I go to http://localhost:8090 to continue the setup, the URL is changed to http://localhost:8090/setup/setupstart.action and nothing else happens. "Waiting for localhost..." is displayed in the browser status line.

Where can I look for the cause of this? The confluence server is running, the port 8090 is allowed in firewall, the confluence log file says that the server is ready.

What does the bottom of the log file say?  You can get this if the Tomcat is running but the application is not.  Check the confluence log file and catalina.out

The last log entry said that the server was started.

Meanwhile I set the java heap size from 1 to 8 GB and rebooted. After that it is working.

Hi, Im running into this problem too. Were you able to resolve it?

As I said in the above reply I resolved it by increasing the heap size.

The parameter is in bin/

CATALINA_OPTS="-Xms8096m -Xmx8096m -XX:+UseG1GC ${CATALINA_OPTS}"


Sorry, I replied under the wrong UserID, please send all the blames to me instead of Thomas Dietz.
