I recently migrated JIRA 6.4 and Confluence 5.7 to a new Ubuntu server. I noticed starting one server automatically stops the other. Has anyone else come across this problem or know what the problem might be?
If you have shared any resources between the two, then yes, this can happen.
Starting one can make the other run out of memory if you've allowed too much memory to them, their databases will lock if you try to share, the home directories, any part of their Tomcat installations and so-on.
Best bet is to read the log. Bring them both up, and then read the application log for the one that stops, and, probably more usefully, the catalina.out file for both Tomcats.
Actually, they do. What they do not support is running multiple products on the same application server. In theory, it's possible to run one Tomcat with JIRA and Confluence and others all running inside it. That is not supported.
But running one Tomcat per application is supported, even if those Tomcats are all on the same server. You must be careful to ensure the server is capable of handling the load though.
