HI,

I am attempting to follow this guide and am having some issues on Ubuntu finding the JAVA Home location that I am supposed to point Portecle at.

" Also, ensure the <JAVA_HOME> variable is pointing to the same version of Java that JIRA uses."

I'm a Ubuntu noob so I'm sure its something basic...

 

I have tried 'sudo find ./ -name java' without anything obvious popping up.

java -version returns:

I have no idea how to tell which version of Java JIRA is using.

 

Any pointers appreciated.

 

Thanks,

 

Calman

It looks like you don't have java in the PATH - this means that Java may not be installed, or the folder which contains its executables is not in the PATH environment variable.

JAVA_HOME is also an environment variable - to see the value of such a variable use:

echo $JAVA_HOME

Before trying to install JIRA, you should get familiar with Ubuntu (and Linux as a whole) as you will probably need to perform a lot of OS tasks to maintain that installation. Read about environment variables here. Read about how to use apt-get to install software.
