My server is not starting and throws an error when I run $JIRA-INSTALL/bin/


I don't know where to point the /etc/environment JAVA_HOME variable when running the Jira installer.

I am using an automated installation, so knowing what to populate in the response.varfile will be useful if that will resolve this issue.

Looking for Java returns these directories ;

# find / -name java

the variable $JAVA_HOME returns nothing;
# echo $JAVA_HOME

There may be a field in the response.varfile that should be set to install Java via the installer?
