Starting and Stopping the Bamboo Server


Update: Jesse wrote in CSPACE-4342:

Bamboo can now be started/stopped using the command:

Code Block
sudo service bamboo start|stop|restart

CollectionSpace's Bamboo server is installed here on the machine in the following directoryserver:

Code Block

To start and stop the Bamboo server, you will need an account with 'sudo' privileges on the server. To start the Bamboo service via Java Service Wrapper, use the 'start-bamboo' command found at /var/www/bamboo/wrapper. The following command line options can be used with the 'start-bamboo' command:

  • 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

For example, to start the Bamboo server:

Code Block
cd /var/www/Bamboo/wrapper
sudo ./start-bamboo start

If the above command is not properly starting bamboo, you can try this alternate command:

Code Block
cd /var/www/Bamboo/
./ start

To check the status of the Bamboo server, follow the pattern of the command used to start the Bamboo server, above, but substitute status for start; e.g. sudo ./start-bamboo status or ./ status.


Code Block
sudo su - bamboo
cd /home/bamboo/atlassian-bamboo-5.15.5
