When restarting the Linux Server Bamboo comes up with set-up screen again


we're using Bamboo 4.3.1 under Linux Ubuntu 12.4 to evaluate the CI System.

We have installed and configured Bamboo (projekt, plan, several Jobs) and all is running fine.

Moreover we have set-up a MySQL database that is used with Babmoo. So far so good.

However, if the Linux System is rebooted Bamboo comes up with the basic set-up screen asking for the licence file again.

Due to this the complete configuration got lost.

Please find here the upstart script we are using (At the moment we still run Babmoo as root - will be changed later)

# bamboo - Continuous Integration tool


# Bamboo is a Continuous Integration tool.

description Bamboo continuous integration tool

start on runlevel 2345

stop on runlevel !2345

# Automatically restart process if crashed


# Give up if restart occurs 10 times in 30 seconds.

respawn limit 10 30

#current bamboo install dir

chdir /usr/share/bamboo/atlassian-bamboo-4.3.1

#First try without bamboo user

exec sh bamboo.sh start

#todo: starting as bamboo user

#exec sudo -u bamboo sh bamboo.sh console

Furthermore we have set in 'bamboo-init.properties'


So, what's the problem here?

What do we have to change preventing to loose the complete configuration

when booting the Linux Server?

Thanks for your support

you have to set up your bamboo home on another rep than under /run. try /home/bamboo for example.
