Confluence startup failure from clean - ConfluenceVelocityResourceCache Cache is not alive (STATUS_SHUTDOWN)

I have downloaded and are tryinf to install atlassian-confluence-5.4-OD-20-005-x64.bin

This fails with:

"type Exception report

message java.lang.IllegalStateException: The com.atlassian.confluence.util.velocity.ConfluenceVelocityResourceCache Cache is not alive (STATUS_SHUTDOWN)

description The server encountered an internal error that prevented it from fulfilling this request.

exception

com.atlassian.confluence.util.velocity.ConfigurableResourceManager.getResource(ConfigurableResourceManager.java:282)"

This fails on 2 different servers, just when I have selected MySQL as DB source. I am pretty sure everything is ok (and yet, problably not) ....just cant figure out what I should be missing.

My conclusion - the OD download was "defect" and way bigger than normal download:

{code}

I installed atlassian-confluence-5.4.4-x64.bin and imported the OD export without problems.

Ref: https://support.atlassian.com/browse/CSP-120027

Gave up on Atlassian support (again)

Got the same issue over here.

In my case, I'm working with the tar.gz release and I tried with both PostgreSQL and embeded databases.

Also tried atlas-run-standalone which doesn't seem to work either.

These problems seem to be solved in the latest release 5.4-OD-5 (at least with the UNIX version)

I have the same problem with atlassian-confluence-5.4-OD-20-005-x64.bin and PostgreSQL 9.3.

I also made it through a successful installation atlassian-confluence-5.4.4-x64.bin (but am having some difficulties with the import).
