Jira couldn't connect to your database. How do I fix this after having tried several things? Edited

So I've been using Jira Software (version 8.0.2) as a server on my laptop (Windows 10 Home) and it worked fine for 2 months. But now I get this screen when I try to go to my external IP:8080 or localhost:8080 or 127.0.0.1:8080.
I can ping my own external ip just fine and this works as well with localhost, 127.0.0.1 and my LAN IP.
My port 8080 is also open (port forwarded through router).
Jira is also running, firewall still has a rule for Jira Server on port 8080 to allow connection.
I do not know where the dbconfig.xml file is and I don't think that's the issue since I never touched it nor do I know where it is.

So I'm completely lost why Jira software suddenly stopped working. My last option would be to uninstall Jira and reinstall it.

Hello Gianni,

make sure to have a look at the logs, they can be very helpful in determining the cause.

The dbconfig.xml can be found in your Jira Home directory. Verify how it connects to your DB

Network issues are likely but it depends on how you run this (unsupported) Jira server, you might be doing networking using hosts file, ngrok, VMware, VirtualBox, ...

Which logs do I look at? The logs in the home directory/log show a lot of log files:

Also my dbconfig looks like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<jira-database-config>
<name>defaultDS</name>
<delegator-name>default</delegator-name>
<database-type>h2</database-type>
<schema-name>PUBLIC</schema-name>
<jdbc-datasource>
<url>jdbc:h2:file:C:\Program Files\Atlassian\Application Data\JIRA/database/h2db</url>
<driver-class>org.h2.Driver</driver-class>

<time-between-eviction-runs-millis>5000</time-between-eviction-runs-millis>
<pool-max-idle>20</pool-max-idle>
<pool-remove-abandoned>true</pool-remove-abandoned>
<pool-remove-abandoned-timeout>300</pool-remove-abandoned-timeout>
</jdbc-datasource>
</jira-database-config>

 

I think I'm using an automatically generated database by Jira?

Oh and all I do for running the server is 
1. Start Jira Server [8080] (basically run the server on my daily usage laptop)
2. Make exceptions in the firewall/antivirus for Jira server on port 8080
3. Port forward my local ip 
And that should work, however it stopped working due to the error I mentioned in the post.

Have a look in the atlassian-jira.log for more details on the actual cause.

Creating a new DB would mean losing all data.

Yes, thank you. This is the most recent part of the log (I do not know if you there are spoiler tags or something similar to hide all this text so it doesn't fill up all the screen):

Hi @Gianni S ,

 

Welcome to the community. 

Where is your database located? Also on your laptop? Are you using the internal H2 database or something else?

Thank you. I am using the internal H2 Database according to the dbconfig.xml. I think that's automatically generated by Jira Server since I never specified a database and just run Jira Server. And yes Jira Server runs on my laptop.

Hi @Gianni S ,

It looks like you can't connect to the database

Try these few steps to attempt to recover your instance.

  • Recover part of it from a snapshot/windows restore points
  • Check if the backup file is enabled and check if the file was created.
    • C:\Program Files\Atlassian\ApplicationData\Jira\export
  • If you are using other database tools, please make sure they are running in the process.
    • Start Postgres if you are using postgres
    • Start Mysql if you are using mysql.

To remediate the issue moving forward.

  • Install PostgresDB or MySQLDB server in your machine
  • Moving forward use that database instead of H2db.

You should be able to find a lot of tutorials on how to set up the DB in your Jira.

Thank you for your reply. I am not using any other database tools.

And I checked the export directory and it seems the zip files stop at June 13th.  Though I think they are supposed to update every day? 

Then I guess my 2nd last option or last option would then be to make a new DB.

@Gianni S

If the backup file exists then you can proceed installing the database and restore that backup in the Backup and Restore section.
