I have tested it on ubuntu 11 and it works, but on suse there is no conlfuence user. I looked in the passwd and shadow.
The error message occurs when I execute the start-confluence.sh:
To run Confluence in the foreground, start the server with start-confluence.sh -fg
executing using dedicated user: confluence
su: user confluence does not exist
I'm on openSUSE 11.2 64 bit
You can create the user with this command:
sudo /usr/sbin/useradd --create-home --comment "Account for running Confluence" --shell /bin/bash confluence
Please make sure this user has permissions to write in these directories:
You can find more information in this link.
Have you tried creating the "confluence" user?
sudo useradd --create-home -c "Confluence role account" confluence
Also, be sure that the directory you've installed Confluence to has the right permissions, for example:
sudo mkdir /usr/local/confluence sudo chown confluence: /usr/local/confluence
