When I try to start JIRA 6.2.1 standalone (via the bin/startup.sh script) I get this in the catalina.out log (and nothing else) and it dies:
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.apache.catalina.startup.Catalina at java.net.URLClassLoader$1.run(Unknown Source) at java.net.URLClassLoader$1.run(Unknown Source) at java.security.AccessController.doPrivileged(Native Method) at java.net.URLClassLoader.findClass(Unknown Source) at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(Unknown Source) at sun.misc.Launcher$AppClassLoader.loadClass(Unknown Source) at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(Unknown Source) at org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap.init(Bootstrap.java:236) at org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap.main(Bootstrap.java:426)
Does anyone have any ideas?
I run the following command, and get the below output, but then it drops back to a prompt, and there are no JIRA processes running. # /bin/su -m jira -c ../bin/startup.sh ..... .... .NMMMD. ... .8MMM. $MMN,..~MMMO. .?MMM. .MMM?.

As I see you are using IBM J9 Java Virtual Machine with JRE 1.6.0 compatibility. Probably that is causing the issues that you see.
JIRA supports just Oracle JDK 1.7 (see https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA062/Supported+Platforms) as well as typically there are no problems with using OpenJDK 1.7 as well.
Raimonds's suggestion is a valid one, Joshua. Given that, can you confirm if the change of JDK would change this behaviour?
Otherwise, since this could be caused by different factors such connection between the instance and the database or a corrupted data, would you mind to provide us the output from the timestamp of the startup in your atlassian-jira.log, so we can track other possible causes?
