I just did a fresh JIRA install of 5.0.3 on a Linux machine.
At some point, long in the past, this machine had a JIRA 4.1.1 instance on it. I dropped the old JIRA database in MySQL. I missed removing the "jira" user from /etc/passwd, so the 5.0.3 JIRA installer created a user named "jira1". Everything seemed to go smoothly, but when I tried to create my first project I got:
"Could not find servlet for: /plugins/servlet/project-config/PROJ/summary"
I also got an error from the main page claiming that "The Gadget Dashboard bundled plugin is not available."
So, I tried a "sudo service jira1 stop" followed by a "sudo service jira1 start"... This didn't improve the situation. Now I get:
The following plugins are required by JIRA, but have not been started:
Hrm... What's gone horribly wrong here?
I tried another stop/start, this time doing a "tail -f catalina.out". I waiting unit I go to the point where all the "Plugin Unit" lines were done, and I got to:
2012-05-01 00:03:13,976 Spring executor 4 INFO [jira.plugins.monitor.MonitoringScheduler] Scheduling metrics collector to run every 10000ms...
Then nothing exciting seemed to be happening, so I tried to go to my JIRA server in a web browser. Then, exiting things started to happen. :P

This is followed by tons and tons of timout errors for various systems.
I have "top" running in another window - I'm not running out of memory, in fact I'm not even touching my swap yet. During this mass of timeouts, java is humming along at 93% CPU usage.
Although, this time I only get a list of 6 plugins in the "JIRA locked" screen instead of 7. Progress of a sort, I suppose.
I ran the "uninstall" in /opt/atlassian/jira, then I "rm -rf"ed /opt/atlassian and /var/atlassian". I removed my old "jira" user from /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow and /etc/group. I did a completely fresh install of JIRA.
I set up my database connection, and then got as far as the screen where I need to enter a license. I copy-pasted my old license, not realizing my server-ID had changed. It never got as far as telling me my license was bad, though; it died with a:
org.springframework.osgi.service.importer.ServiceProxyDestroyedException: service proxy has been destroyed
Looking at the logs, I again see all kinds of timeouts:
org.springframework.context.ApplicationContextException: Application context initialization for 'com.atlassian.applinks.plugin' has timed out
