Server does not start and upon checking FISHEYE_INST/var/log/debug.log. or standard out you find the error message:

ERROR - Unknown host error binding web port: http: http

Usually, this follows changes made to your config.xml or Admin > Server Settings.


You have defined a http protocol for your http bind address, which should not be there. Please check the documentation


Edit your config.xml to remove the protocol from the 'http://hostname:8060' section of the http bind.
I.e. change from

        <http bind="http://hostname:8060"/>


        <http bind="hostname:8060"/>
