does FISHEYE_INST environment variable prevent me from installing crucible and fisheye on the save server?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Installing Crucible on Linux and Mac

According to the documentation this is seems to prevent from doing this as the same variable name is pointing to two different locations.  Or am I reading this wrong?


FishEye DOC: FISHEYE_INST="path/to/<FishEye instance directory>"

Crucible DOC: FISHEYE_INST="path/to/<Crucible instance directory>"


Or can they just share a FISHEYE_INST directory?

FISHEYE_INST directory cannot be shared.

You can try with setting FISHEYE_INST just before starting an instance. 

export FISHEYE_INST=&lt;location1&gt;

wow, I don't know how to reply to that.  

I see both when unzipped create this folder: fecru-4.1.2  is this the same app?  Do i actually need to have two installs to use both of them?

what actually separates them into two applications?


thanks for reply


Ok, I didn't understand your problem correctly.

I though that you want to install many FishEye or Crucible applications (totally separated). In this case FISHEYE_INST cannot be shared because one application will override another's data.

But, I understand that you want to have Fisheye and Crucible running together.

FishEye and Crucible are bundled together. Each of them is activated when you provide license for it. It doesn't matter which app you start.

Pick one of them, start and add license for both products into same instance. 


OH...ok, so I just need one install and the licenses activate each feature?  That makes much more sense.  Thanks, Joe
