Remember Atlassian is providing free license for Open Source Projects:

Atlassian supports and believes in the Open Source movement – Bamboo utilizes a number of good Open Source components, and Atlassian developers are committers on a large number of Open Source projects.

To give back to the open source community (and hopefully improve the quality of those projects!), Bamboo is free for any Open Source project to use.

There are a few requirements for an Open Source license, the main ones being:

  • Established code base
  • Publicly available project website
  • Using an approved open source license
  • Your Bamboo instance will be publicly accessible

My objective is to make Joomla! and all my projects also running in Bamboo (not only in TeamCity as the limit of 20 builds will be rapidly reached)

Very quick Bamboo install how to

Install a fresh Tomcat 6 runtime,

Move the war into the ROOT web context of tomcat

Copy mysqldriver.jar into /lib

Configure the data source into server.xml

<Host name="localhost"  appBase="webapps"             unpackWARs="true" autoDeploy="true"             xmlValidation="false" xmlNamespaceAware="false">         <Resource name="jdbc/BambooDS" auth="Container" type="javax.sql.DataSource"             username="user"             password="pwd"             driverClassName="com.mysql.jdbc.Driver"                         url="jdbc:mysql://localhost/schema?autoReconnect=true"                         maxActive="20"             validationQuery="select 1" />

Edit /etc/apache/

worker.list=ajp13, teamcity, jira, bamboo worker.bamboo.port=8030 worker.bamboo.type=ajp13
