Unable to stop Jira

Hi Experts,

 

I want to upgrade Jira , but I am unable to stop Jira.  Following is the current status of Jira. Could anyone please guide me?

How are you trying to stop Jira and what is the output of that?

I am using the command "sudo service Jira stop" to stop the server. It's not giving me any output.  But the Jira software (GUI Application on Web) is still running. 

If there's no output from that, it means the service controller script got no output back from the Jira shut-down script.

That is not that unusual, a lot of applications (yes, Java, I'm looking at you for failing to enforce output on failure) don't feed back in a way that service control scripts understand, which is incredibly annoying, but something we admins are stuck with and have to deal with.

The next things to read are:

  • <jira install>/logs/catalina.out
  • <jira home>/log/atlassian-jira.log

One of those two will probably have an error message in there telling you that it got a shutdown message and why it did not do it.

HI, I got this information when i opened atlassian-jira.log . Will this information help us?

catalina.out

These logs show no shutdown message being recieved and no fatal process-ending errors.  So either it is running, or something in your operating system is killing it.

Hi, when I used the command "sudo /etc/init.d/jira stop" to stop Jira, I got the following error message "PID file found but either no matching process was found or the current user does not have permission to stop the process. Stop aborted". Is this message giving us any hint to resolve the issue? 

Server startup logs are located in /opt/atlassian/jira/logs/catalina.out
Using CATALINA_BASE: /opt/atlassian/jira
Using CATALINA_HOME: /opt/atlassian/jira
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: /opt/atlassian/jira/temp
Using JRE_HOME: /opt/atlassian/jira/jre/
Using CLASSPATH: /opt/atlassian/jira/bin/bootstrap.jar:/opt/atlassian/jira /bin/tomcat-juli.jar
Using CATALINA_PID: /opt/atlassian/jira/work/catalina.pid
PID file found but either no matching process was found or the current user does not have permission to stop the process. Stop aborted.

That message effectively says that it's not running at all.

could you please help me what should I do to stop Jira? 

Seeing as you're using three different stop and start methods and have two different reports on whether it is running or not, then I'm afraid I can only say that you've got your startup/shutdown into a mess.

So:

  • Check if Jira is running by hand - ignore the scripts.
    • ps -ef | grep -i jira
  • If this returns a huge long command line with a load of paths and -XX, -D and CATALINA stuff in it, then Jira is running.  That line will also have contained the process id as the second column, so you can then run
    • kill -9 <process id>
  • Give it a few seconds, then retry the ps command.  You may need to be "root", and you might need to give it a bit more than a few seconds if it's really behaving badly
  • Now decide whether you want to use systemd or init.d to control it
  • Delete the method you don't want (rename or move the systemd unit file, or stick an "exit" right at the top of the init.d script)
  • Check the permissions and ownership on your Jira installation and Jira data directories - they and all their content should be owned by the jira user
  • Swap to use the jira user
  • Go you your Jira installation/bin (given your original question, I'd say /opt/atlassian/jira/bin and run ./start-jira.sh
  • Test Jira and make sure it's running ok.  You can then plumb it into your chosen start up script.
