Migrating Jira/MySQL from Windows desktop to Linux


My client is migrating a small Jira Application from a Windows Desktop to a Linux server. I presume the standard XML export/import will work for migrating the database.

Should the Jira application and MySQL database run under the same OS user? I would prefer they didn't, due to the support model (DBAs don't want non-DBAs messing with them). I would hope Jira would access the database as a database user. Can they run under separate users without an issue?

Any other thoughts or lessons learned would be appreciated.

Thank you.

It doesn't matter. I would recommend running the Jira process as an unprivileged user, though, and configuring a reverse proxy (can run on the same server) to listen to port 80/443 and proxy to Jira over the default 8080 port.

Thank you, Dave!
