To install Bamboo Standalone on Linux,

Step 1. Download and installing Bamboo Standalone

Bamboo Standalone for Linux is available for download here.

Linux Archive (.tar.gz)

  1. To install Bamboo using the Linux archive version (atlassian-bamboo-x.x-standalone.tar.gz), you need to extract the files to a Bamboo installation directory of your choice. By default, the root directory of the tar file is "Bamboo".
  2. You will also need to setup your Bamboo home directory — this is the directory where Bamboo will store its configuration data. To do this, open the file named bamboo-init.properties in the <Bamboo installation directory>/webapp/WEB-INF/classes directory. In this file, insert the property "bamboo.home", with an absolute path to your Bamboo home directory. Your file should look something like this:
    bamboo.home=/test/bamboo-home
    

    You must use forward-slashes in your directory path. Backslashes are not recognised by Bamboo. Please ensure that the Bamboo home directory is not located inside the Bamboo installation directory

    Alternatively, you can specify an environment variable 'BAMBOO_HOME' which specifies the absolute path to your {BAMBOO_HOME} directory. Bamboo will check if an environment variable is defined.

Step 2. Launch Bamboo Standalone on Linux

There are two ways you can launch Bamboo on Linux:

1. Launch via bamboo.sh startup script

You can start Bamboo with the default bamboo.sh file in your installation root directory. The bamboo.sh command accepts the following options (e.g. ./bamboo.sh start):

  • start — this starts Bamboo.
  • stop — this stops Bamboo.
  • restart — this restarts Bamboo
  • status — this provides the current status of Bamboo.  

2. Launch via Java Service Wrapper

The wrapper is platform specific, and doesn't work on SunOS.

Alternatively, you can start Bamboo via a Java Service Wrapper, which provides services such as automatic restarting. To do this, you will need to use the start-bamboo command available in the /wrapper folder of the Bamboo installation. You will need to fire the command with one of the following options (e.g. ./start-bamboo start):

  • console — this starts Bamboo in a console. The logs will scroll to standard out.
  • start — this starts Bamboo.
  • stop — this stops Bamboo.
  • restart — this restarts Bamboo
  • status — this provides the current status of Bamboo.
  • dump — stops Bamboo abruptly by killing the process

(info) Once Bamboo has started, you can access it by going to your web browser and entering the address: http://localhost:8085/.
(info) If you have installed Bamboo on a machine with multiple interfaces, and need to bind Bamboo to a single IP address, please see Binding Bamboo to one IP address.

Step 3. Configure Bamboo
