JIRA installing and configure on CentOS


How to install and configure jira on Centos. Installing and configuring JIRA on CentOS involves a series of systematic steps to set up this popular project management tool effectively. Begin by preparing your CentOS system with the necessary prerequisites, including Java. Then, download and install the JIRA software from Atlassian’s official site. Configuration involves setting up a database, typically PostgreSQL or MySQL, and adjusting the JIRA setup wizard to connect to your newly prepared database. This process ensures that JIRA runs smoothly on CentOS, providing a robust platform for managing your projects. Now, let’s proceed with the JIRA installation and configuration on CentOS.

JIRA installing

[vagrant@DevopsRoles ~]$ echo "jira ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD:ALL" | sudo tee -a /etc/sudoers
[vagrant@DevopsRoles ~]$ su -l jira
[jira@DevopsRoles ~]$

Create a temporary install directory:

[jira@DevopsRoles ~]$ mkdir jira && cd jira

Go to JIRA Installation Directory:

[jira@DevopsRoles ~]$ cd ~/atlassian/jira/
[jira@DevopsRoles jira]$ sudo ./bin/start-jira.sh

start-jira.sh and stop-jira.sh in folder bin

Check JIRA should already be running.

Create user MySQL

mysql -u root -p 
mysql> CREATE DATABASE jiradb CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_bin;
mysql> CREATE USER 'jiradb'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'Abc123!@#';
mysql> GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON jiradb.* TO 'jiradb'@'localhost' WITH GRANT OPTION;

we need a JDBC connector driver for MySQL

[jira@DevopsRoles ~]$ cd && mkdir tmp
[jira@DevopsRoles ~]$ cd tmp/
[jira@DevopsRoles tmp]$ wget http://dev.mysql.com/get/Downloads/Connector-J/mysql-connector-java-5.1.29.tar.gz

[jira@DevopsRoles tmp]$ cp mysql-connector-java-5.1.29/mysql-connector-java-5.1.29-bin.jar ~/atlassian/jira/lib/
[jira@DevopsRoles tmp]$ cd

Restart JIRA
