when I first installed Jira, I set up a MySQL database.
I connected to this database during the Browser install progress and was told that everything worked.
When i now log in to Jira i get an Error:
Checks if the instance is connected to an HSQL or H2 database
Jira is using the H2 embedded database. You should migrate to a supported database to ensure your data is safe.
Why is that so ?
I configured MySQL and was told that Jira successfully connectet to it.
Do i need to do aditional stuff ?
When setting up Jira to connect to the H2 database would occur if you selected the Set it up for me option during the install as covered here, but as you noted setting up the database connection and seeing the confirmation during the install that does not seem like what occurred here.
The only other thing I could think of is if you were copying over a jira-home directory from a previous install and over wrote the dbconfig.xml that had a connection to an h2 rather than the MySQL you previously configured.
But double check the dbconfig.xml in your jia-home directory as this will be the source of truth as to where the DB is currently pointing.
If you do not have any data with this being a fresh install I would suggest just reinstalling the instance, following one of these guides:
But if you have data that needs to be migrated off the H2 to the MySQL DB to correct this the best approach is to:
By following these steps you should be all set with the data imported into a the new MySQL database with the correct database configuration.
