I have Jira running with MySQL DB in Linux

Is it possible to install confluence by using existing MySQL??

Please share the document for installing confluence in Linux

Hi Shrinivas,

Jira and Confluence can share the same database but need to have separate schemas. Please carefully review this article for the Dos and Don'ts of this configuration:

Essentially, when you create your Confluence user, you are creating a new schema.

  1. Run the 'mysql' command as a MySQL super user. The default user is 'root' with a blank password.
  2. Create an empty Confluence database schema by running this command:

    CREATE DATABASE confluence CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_bin;
  3. Create the Confluence database user by running this command. Replace 'confluenceuser' and 'confluencepass' with a username and password of your choice. If Confluence is not running on the same server as your MySQL database server, replace 'localhost' with the hostname or IP address of the Confluence server:

    GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON confluence.* TO 'confluenceuser'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'confluencepass';

To set up Confluence on Linux, you can follow this article closely:

Let us know if you have any trouble!

Kind Regards,

Thanks Shannon. Solved
