@malin_jayaweera 

Did you try to kill the PID and then do systemctl jira stop? 

systemctl status jira to make sure it stopped.

Best,

Fadoua

Hi @Fadoua 

Do you know, why we will have this error? I met the same issue as @malin_jayaweera 

Usually we manually kill pid. but i really want to know, why we will have this issue? We want to fix this issue and won't manually kill the Pid

Morning @Mandia 

A stale PID file failed to clear and is preventing startup.

It happens, it is a very common issue with TomCat. Explaining more is beyond my skills. May be a System Administrator can explain to you what happens exactly in TomCat.

All the best,

Fadoua
