OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM is an unsupported JVM.


I am trying to install the latest version of Stash on a Centos 6 server.

java -version:

OpenJDK Runtime Environment (rhel-2.2.1.el6_3.3-x86_64)

OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.0-b21, mixed mode)

When I go to localhost:7990 I get this error message:

The following problem occurred which prevents Atlassian Stash from starting correctly

OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM is an unsupported JVM

Best regards,

I solved this issue by using the jre shipped with JIRA.


Yes, that's a supported JVM, unlike the OpenJDK you were using.

On Fedora 18 I did the following:

-Downloaded Java from oracle here (I selected jdk-7u15-linux-i586.rpm)

-Installed this rpm with yum with:

yum install ./jdk-7u15-linux-i586.rpm

-Set JAVA_HOME variable in ~/.bash_profile to:

export JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/latest

Then stash started normally...

And the question is ?....

Yes? According to that page x86_64 is supported..

Please use an Oracle JDK which is supported by the product. Your Linux box can accomodate more than 1 JDK.

Please check this page.

No, it's not. There's a difference between OpenJDK and Oracle Java.

You've fixed this by swapping to a supported JVM
