I was told by previous MIS installed that when you use the *.exe to install Confluence it causes problems on the server with ownership rights as opposed to using *.ZIP file. Does anyone know if the issue was fixed with the EXE install? The problem is that the .EXE file ASSUMES that this is the only WEB application on the server. Any way around it? Jira & Confluence on same server
Please have a look at this article: Installing Confluence and JIRA Together. What do you mean when you say:
The problem is that the .EXE file ASSUMES that this is the only WEB application on the server.
Are you having problems with the ports? You can modify the connection ports in the file <INSTALLATION_DIR>/conf/server.xml
If you want to access both application in the same port, you will need to start them in different ports and use a proxy listening in the common port. You can find more details of this configuration in my previous link.
Our issue was due to the other software we run on the server plus mutilple Confluence. I need to get an answer from our MIS as to why there seems to be ownership issues with the web. I will probably have the same isssue with manual JIRA install. Is it safe to use the same config files 4.2.3 to Jira 5.2?
I'm not sure why it's happening this problem with .exe, but you can install the standalone version which is the .zip file. To install the standalone version is pretty easy, we just have to follow a few steps:
I hope this helps.
