I'm running on Tomcat6, JRE6, Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. I have problems with installing stash 1.3.0, I got the following error when I go to the page http://188.8.131.52:8080/stash/unavailable :
A fatal error has occurred
The following problem occurred which prevents Atlassian Stash from starting correctly:
The Spring WebApplicationContext could not be started
Thanks for your help :)
As discussed on your support.atlassian.com ticket, this is caused by having Log4J in the classpath for Stash. Stash uses Logback and SLF4J, and it uses log4j-over-slf4j to support frameworks which have coded explicitly to Log4J's API. Because it uses log4j-over-slf4j, Log4J itself must not be in the classpath.
If you are deploying Stash into a Tomcat which is hosting Confluence or JIRA (or any other Atlassian webapp), you must separate it. The Tomcats for those webapps include Log4J in their lib/ directories, as they have not converted to Logback, and will cause the Stash webapp to fail.
Hope this helps!
That stinks! I just encountered this problem and came across this post (I guess this explains the stack overflow error in catalina.out that gets thrown for the two jar files: log4j and slf4j). I think it is bizarre that the Atlassian suite of products does not share code base for stuff like logging, and thus make their products not play nicely together. I REALLY want to run everything in the same Tomcat stack for ease of management, but alas...
It's officially Tuesday, which means it's officially time for another tip to help you better navigate this space we call the Atlassian Community. 😄 I got a great question from community member, Sa...
