You probably updated an existing installation instead of a fresh install. Try your old User:pass.

Oh, yes, I didn't notice the upper image, sorry.

If this is not a fresh installation I suggest you just start over.

Hi Grig, actually when I installed atlassian-jira-core-8.1.0-x64.exe, it has not asked to create admin account. Let me un-install and install it again

I choosed Express Install, it installed itself and launched in browser, it didnt asked to create Admin account also in launched browser it is not showing any setup Wizard, please refer snapshot.


It is not showing JIRA setup wizard as below, please help

If you have your database set up as in the installation guide as well as other production requirements you can easily choose "I'll set it up myself" and go on.

Thanks Grig, it worked out, I deleted Application Data folder and then re-installed, it worked out.

Grig, I am able to login but it is not showing Boards button, please help.
