After Bamboo installation (downloading the Standalone archive, extracting data, and from BAMBOO_INSTALL/webapp/WEB-INF/classes/ file pointing to an empty BAMBOO_HOME directory) Bamboo cannot start up to run the setup wizard. Here is the result:

root@v1 /opt/atlassian/bamboo # ./ start
Starting Bamboo:
STARTED Bamboo Wed Mar 6 12:42:02 CET 2013
Bamboo running, pid=9929
root@v1 /opt/atlassian/bamboo # nohup: redirecting stderr to stdout

root@v1 /opt/atlassian/bamboo # ./ status
Bamboo with pid=9929 is not running - removing old pidfile
Bamboo is currently not running.
root@v1 /opt/atlassian/bamboo # cat webapp/WEB-INF/classes/
## You can specify your bamboo.home property here or in your system environment variables.


root@v1 /opt/atlassian/bamboo # ls -ls /home/bamboo
total 0
root@v1 /opt/atlassian/bamboo # 


There is no JDK installed.


Please refer to the Supported Platforms page and install a supported JDK to be able to run Bamboo.
