Unable to restart Jira

I have JIRA running on Centos. When I try and restart it says Tomcat appears to be still running with Pid 32818. Start aborted

And is it....?

Tried doing a

ps auxwww | grep java

And see if you see a PID with number 32818?

I assume you have a legit reason to restart it. Try sending a hup to the process and maybe it terminates.

kill -hup 32818

Give it a few seconds. Do a couple of ps auxwww | grep java to see if the pid remains running. If it refuses to die, go full-on and murder it:

kill -9 32818

Needless to say, it might be that someone started the process as root, and that root wrote the pid-file, and that it no longer can be overwritten/removed due to permissions. If this is the case you might have to chown the files and folders accordingly, but you might want to try all this for a start.

I nuked Catalina.pid file and JIRA started. Now I struggle with Bitbucket as the Java Home variable keeps getting redirected to jre.

Plus Bitbucket is running but cant ssh access it.
