Is it possible to install Jira and Confluence in same machine and sharing same DB (MySql).

I am trying to install confluence in machine which Jira was running but after rebooting Jira stop working (showing DB issue) and also confluence failed to connect with DB

Yes, you can.

Create 2 databases in the same mysql server, grant user permissions (since it's test, just grant all privileges) to the same user. In this case username 'atlassian' and password 'easy', for all databases;

CREATE USER 'atlassian'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'easy';
GRANT ALL ON *.* TO 'atlassian'@'localhost';

Also make sure they run on different native ports, so jira will be port 8080 while confluence will be 8081, or whatever floats your boat.




I am not getting success to install the Jira and Confluence in same machine. Jira is already working but when I tried to install confluence, Jira also stopped working.

I followed the confluence installation as mentioned in document and able to reach upto url http://localhost:8090. But unable to connect with any one of options: standard JDBC database connection or Datasource Name.

Can you provide simple step by step procedure for installing confluence with existing Jira machine.
