Unable to access server on fresh install on Linux
As of Bitbucket Server 5.x+, no logs are written to the BITBUCKET_INSTALL directory. The contents of catalina.out will be written to BITBUCKET_HOME/log/atlassian-bitbucket.log file.
After installing and starting Bitbucket Server for the first time, you're unable to access the server on http://<SERVER_NAME>:7990/
catalina.out indicates that server started without error:
INFO: Starting Servlet Engine: Apache Tomcat/7.0.54 Aug 06, 2014 8:58:05 PM org.apache.coyote.AbstractProtocol start INFO: Starting ProtocolHandler ["http-bio-7990"] Aug 06, 2014 8:58:05 PM org.apache.catalina.startup.Catalina start INFO: Server startup in 13332 ms
Check that port 7990 is allowing incoming connections:
sudo iptables -L
You're unable to access the server because the firewall is preventing connections on port 7990.
Allow incoming connections on port 7990 by running the following command:
sudo iptables -I INPUT -p tcp --dport 7990 -j ACCEPT
