I'm trying to install the Jira & Confluence on the same Ubuntu machine, here I given the version details.
I did Jira MySQL installation with characterEncoding as utf8mb4 successfully.
Now while I'm trying for Confluence setup it is asking me to change the characterEncoding as utf8.
What should I need to change the configuration in process to achieve this task?
If I configure both Jira & Confluence on same machine on same MySQL database what will be the issue?
Which are the best versions to be configure on Ubuntu 16.04 without issues?
I've license keys for these products.
Please find the screenshot.
Hi @Sambit_Kumar_Patra ,
Jira and Confluence use a different character encoding, this should be setup when you create the database.
For Confluence :
CREATE DATABASE confluencedb CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_bin;
For Jira :
CREATE DATABASE jiradb CHARACTER SET utf8mb4 COLLATE utf8mb4_bin;
You don't need to change the entire MySQL server default setting as it can be set for each database that you create.
For Confluence, this guide can be useful for MySQL setup : https://confluence.atlassian.com/doc/database-setup-for-mysql-128747.html#DatabaseSetupForMySQL-3.Createdatabaseanddatabaseuser
