FishEye as non-root user

I'm trying to get FishEye running on CentOS 5.9 x64 as a non-root user. I'm able to run the server properly as root, which is clearly not desireable in terms of security. So, I have given a different user access to the FishEye install directory and the FishEye data directory, however this user is unable to start FishEye. Whenever I try to do a restore, I get the following error:

jira@serv [/sw/fecru-2.9.1]# bin/fisheyectl.sh restore -f /home/jira/FeCru-backup.zip --username username --password password --dbtype mysql --jdbcurl jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/db_name

This same command works perfectly fine when I am root. The permessions should be setup properly, as I am able to open all of the JAR files in the /sw/fecru-2.9.1/lib directory. Is there something else that this user needs to have access to in order to run FishEye?

The problem in this case was that the user that I had created was only able to open 100 simultaneous files at the same time(ulimit -n). Since there are ~200 jar files in the lib directory that FishEye needs, it could never load all of the jar files that it needed. I increased this limit to 1000 so that this particular error does not happen anymore.

Can you make sure change the ownership of those 2 directories with a -R option? Do it after you stop Fisheye and then start it as the new user.

Tried that, still the same error. I even tried permissions of 777, no change at all.
