Can't load localhost:8080 after Initial Setup and reboot

Hey there,

I'm just setting up the trial for some testing and after setup and a reboot, I cannot access localhost:8080. I have tried re-running the from the install directory and it notifies me that it has started but I still cannot connect. 



bash-3.2# java -version

java version "1.8.0_20"

Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_20-b26)

Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.20-b23, mixed mode)


bash-3.2# ./ 


To run JIRA in the foreground, start the server with -fg

executing as current user

        .8MMM.  $MMN,..~MMMO.

        .?MMM.         .MMM?.


     OMMMMZ.           .,NMMMN~



        =NMMMMMM,. .,MMMMMMD.






         .8MMMMM:  :NMMMMN.

Hi Diana

your browser is on the same machine where is JIRA located?
In your catalina.out, can you find something like:

JIRA X.X.X build: XXXX started. You can now access JIRA through your web browser.



can you provide you logfile? 

Find it at %JIRA_Home%\log\atlassian-jira.log


My browser is  on the same machine as JIRA. Where is the catalina.out? Sorry, completely new at this! 

Plugins are not loading, looks to be the issue perhaps as the folder for plugins is empty... 

The error looks a bit strange:

org.springframework.osgi.service.importer.ServiceProxyDestroyedException: service proxy has been destroyed

Can you cleanup the .osgi-plugins and .bundled-plugins from $JIRA_HOME/plugins and start JIRA again from the scripts in the bin directory?

Yeah, those two files don't even exist actually. That plugins folder has nothing in it. I think it's failing when installing the plugins on start up but I'm not sure why as I was able to run the initial setup.

They are two hidden folder under $JIRA_HOME/plugins.

ll -la and you see it

Delete, stop and restart jira
