Confluence is a collaboration and documentation tool developed by Atlassian. It enables teams to create, organize, and share knowledge with ease. In this guide, we will walk you through the process of installing Confluence on CentOS 8.
A fresh CentOS 8 instance
Root access or a user with sudo privileges
Step 1: Update System Packages
First, we need to update the system packages to their latest versions. Connect to your CentOS 8 server through SSH, and run the following commands:
sudo dnf update -y
Step 2: Install Java
Confluence requires Java to run. Install OpenJDK 11 by running the following command:
sudo dnf install java-11-openjdk-devel -y
Step 3: Create a Confluence User
We will create a dedicated system user to run the Confluence service. Run the following command to create a new user called "confluence":
sudo useradd -m confluence
Step 4: Download and Extract Confluence
Go to the official Atlassian Confluence downloads page and copy the link for the latest version of Confluence.
sudo su - confluence
wget -O confluence.tar.gz paste_confluence_download_link_here
tar -xvzf confluence.tar.gz
Step 5: Configure Confluence
Create a new file called response.varfile under the atlassian-confluence-X.X.X-standalone directory (replace X.X.X with the Confluence version you downloaded), and paste the following configuration:
