@Raju Seems that your H2 database has been corrupted. See this similar post to see if it helps you:

You may need to use H2 database recovery tool or if you have the backup then you can try to restore it.

But if it is a totally new JIRA installation, I would recommend to setup sufficient JVM heap memory for JIRA ( to avoid Db corruption due to insufficient memory.

Hello Taranjeet Singh,


Thank you for the reply. issue was resolved.

@Raju Curious to know as how you resolved it? It will be helpful for the community as well !

Raju, is it safe to assume this is a test Jira server and not a production server? You should NOT use the H2 database for production.

@Michael Thompson 

It is a test jira server only, for production we are using Oracle 10g database


Thank you for the suggestion.
