Our server ran out of disk space. We have corrected this issue and now Jira does not want to start. Bitbucket and Confluence started without any issue and Jira outputs these
[ec2-user@ip-172-31-59-210 ~]$ sudo service jira start
To run JIRA in the foreground, start the server with start-jira.sh -fg
executing using dedicated user: jira
Version : 7.12.1
If you encounter issues starting or stopping JIRA, please see the Troubleshooting guide at http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Installation+Troubleshooting+Guide

Check if Jira got installed as jira2 user.
As root, run < cat /etc/passwd |grep jira >
If returns jira2, then ensure that you have stopped jira service < service jira stop >
Then, run the following command in both /opt/atlassian and /var/atlassian/application-data directories.
<chown -R jira2:jira2 jira>
Now restart jira service <service jira start> and you should be fine now!!
