3GB+

Good to know

  • You'll need at least 3GB available memory. We recommend 1GB for Bitbucket Server and an additional 2GB to support Git operations. 
  • Your specific hardware requirements will depend on the number and frequency of Git operations and the number of active users. See Scaling Bitbucket Server for more information. 

Environments

(tick) Linux

(tick) Microsoft Windows (up to 500 users)

(info) Apple macOS

Known issues

  • Microsoft Windows is not supported for Bitbucket Data Center / 500+ Enterprise tiers.
  • You should not use Windows Resilient File System (ReFS) as NTFS is required.
  • Apple macOS is evaluation only. MacOS cannot be used for production deployment.

Good to know

  • Bitbucket Server will install a supported version of Oracle Java JRE that is only available to Bitbucket Server if necessary. See Running the Bitbucket Server installer.

  • If you choose to pre-install a JRE, we recommend using Oracle JRE 8, which you can download from the Oracle website

  • For OpenJDK, download and install instructions for Linux flavors at http://openjdk.java.net/install/.

  • Pre-installed Java on some AWS EC2 Linux instances might be installed with a subset of features. See SSH server fails to start on AWS EC 2 instance for more information.

  • We support standard OpenJDK builds, including Oracle's official build, alternative builds such as AdoptOpenJDK, and builds shipped with Linux distributions such as Red Hat Enterprise. 

Databases

PostgreSQL

(tick) 9.4 - 11

MySQL  (Bitbucket Server only)

(tick) MariaDB 10.0.10+ 

(tick) MariaDB 5.5.23+

Known Issues

MySQL, while supported by Bitbucket Server, is currently not  recommended, especially for larger instances, due to inherent performance and deadlock issues that occur in this database engine under heavy load.

See Connecting Bitbucket Server to MySQL for more details and http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/innodb-deadlocks.html for some general information on deadlock issues.

You should not use Bitbucket Server with the following:

Do not use MySQL in Bitbucket Data Center.

(warning) Deprecated

Known Issues

MS SQL

Connecting Bitbucket Server to SQL Server

  • Named Instances: If you have a named instance on your server, it is not possible to migrate from the internal database to a named instance of SQL Server using the UI procedure. You will need to manually edit the bitbucket.properties file as described on the Connecting to named instances in SQL Server from Bitbucket Server Knowledge Base article.

  H2

  • H2 is bundled with Bitbucket Server for evaluation use only.
  • H2 can be used with Bitbucket Data Center mirrors in production.

HSQLDB

  • Please see connecting Bitbucket Server to an external database.
  • HSQLDB is not supported in Bitbucket Data Center.
  • HSQLDB support was deprecated as of Bitbucket Server 4.0+. New Bitbucket Server installs will bundle and use H2 as the default database for evaluation purposes.

Git – server

We recommend using the most recent supported version of Git on both the Bitbucket Server instance and clients where possible, subject to the following notes and exceptions:

  • The version of Git installed on machines that interact with Bitbucket Server must be compatible with the version of Git installed for use by the Bitbucket Server instance.

  • Do not use CygwinGit on Windows servers, regardless of version.

  • Git for Windows 2.12.2  has a regression in git status which causes editing files to fail. The regression has been fixed, and the fix was included in Git for Windows 2.12.3.

  • BSERV-9673 - File editing fails using Git for Windows 2.12.2 CLOSED
