Hi @rajni kanth , 


it is possible to install Jira and Confluence on the same server (they'll each have an application home, an installation directory, and their own JVM process). As long as you have enough memory on the server, it shouldn't be a problem.


Let me know if this helps, 



Yes you can.

But Atlassian strictly recommends NOT doing so.

Upgrading one application makes the other also unavailable.

Why not use APACHE TOMCAT that comes bundled with JIRA and Confluence and run them instead in their own and separate APACHE TOMCAT ?

The answer to this depends on what you mean by "application server".

If you mean the same "application server" software, then technically, you can, but you'll have to unpack one or both applications, unbundling them from their Tomcat application servers, and then install them in your application server.  This is absolutely unsupported and will cause all sorts of errors unless you happen to land on a happy combination of Jira and Confluence that are not on conflicting versions of their various supporting libraries.

If you mean the same "application server" as in "computer running the software", then yes, you can run both on the same machine.  Only concern is making sure the machine can run the right versions of Java and it has enough resources to run both at the same time.
