cannot find



I have now installed , or am trying to install crowd as the authentication  server for JIRA, CONFLUENCE, BAMBOO, GIT, SVN and FISHEYE. 

i have not come very far and i have the problem that the zip file i downloaded and extracted does not have the which i have to start according to the cowd 101 howto.


my steps where as following:


I installed

-JIRA (own server / own DB)

-CONFLUENCE (own server / own DB)

-FISHEYE and SVN (own server)


now i am on to crowd:

downloaded: and because i was not 100% sure what i should use.

copied everything to my DEBIAN 8 server under /opt

unzipped  everything, moved it to it^s CROWD_INSTALL directory /opt/atlassian/crowd_2.9.1/

put the information into   /opt/atlassian/crowd_2.9.1/WEB-INF/classes/



  • i am not sure if i will be needing the Database here ( seeing that i want every authentication (except for the crowd administrator) to come from an Active Directory - LDAP)

so i thought i would just start the crowd server and see what i can configure online.


But i am not able to find this  anywhere not with locate, find or anything.

I have downloaded the source now 3 times and unzipped it.


am I missing out in something here ?


Hope someone can help me out here.

The WAR download you've got is for deploying Crowd into a container application - it won't run on its own.  if you don't want to have to worry about containers, get the "standalone" download instead - it includes the container application (tomcat) and is preconfigured for it.

HI again.
