Does that error happen when you click "Next", or is it there when you get to the screen?

What does the log file say when you trigger the error?



where see log file?

Its in <jira home>/logs by default.  I'd expect atlassian-jira.log to be the one the error goes into.


2017-07-31T20:45:37.924+0300: 2798.413: [GC (Allocation Failure) [PSYoungGen: 156673K->10473K(197632K)] 413949K->270267K(697344K), 0.0322499 secs] [Times: user=0.05 sys=0.00, real=0.03 secs]

I'd expect a lot more than that, and something mentioning licencing.

However that error is a "Garbage Collection" error, and that could well be the system failing at the wrong time, or triggered by memory changes as you try to apply the licence.

I'd want to fix that in any case.  What are the memory settings for the service?  (ps -ef | grep -i jira would expose them all on a command line)

Hmm, those look ok to me.  We could go into that a lot more, but it may be a red-herring too. 

Could you look at the log file again and look for the errors that occur when you are clicking "next" on the licence screen?

Well, that's a far more interesting error, and would explain it all, it means your database connection is broken.

Check the credentials and database settings are correct and that your user has full database access.
