It's possible to run multiple JIRA instances on one machine as long as the instance completes the following requirements:

  • Not sharing the same listening or shutdown port of any other instance or service.
  • Not sharing the same database with another instance.
  • When using services within windows, using 2 different windows service definitions.
  • Not sharing the same JIRA home folder.
  • Not deploying multiple instances using a Single Tomcat Application Container.
  • Having separate licenses for each of the instances.

By default, JIRA runs on port 8080 (and hence is available at (http://<yourserver>:8080, eg. http://localhost:8080).

If you want to run another JIRA instance but already has a service claiming port 8080, there will be a conflict, and JIRA will fail to start. You may see errors like this:

Can you please help in understanding this?

 

  • Not deploying multiple instances using a Single Tomcat Application Container.

Appreciate your response :)

It means not using the same Tomcat to deploy more than one Jira Instance: https://confluence.atlassian.com/jira/running-multiple-instances-of-jira-on-one-machine-222200571.html 

Definitely check the docs posted by the others... but answering your question: Yes, it is possible :-)

Funny thing, have you tried entering the same question in Google? Leads me to the documentation posted here :-)
