Hi All ,
I am migrating a Jira standalone instance to a Jira WAR , I follwed this document and Jira now runs on a separate Tomcat but all the file/ jira source, vm , js , etc . customizations I have done are not reflecting in JIRA . Under the webapps/jira I see the files are modified but they dont behave as expected .
Has anybody encountered this issue before ? Any comment or suggestion appreciated .
Thank you :)
Difficult to say unless you can explain exactly how you built the WAR.
Also, could you confirm that your old Jira and new Jira are totally separate installs on the application server? So there's no chance of the two mixing? (Reusing the same database is fine, it's just to ensure the new system is not going to pick up any bits of the old one)
Well, that's never going to work...
> Copied the old /atlassian-jira directory to tomcats /edit-webapp
eYou need to work through each and every change you've made to the base installation and place them under /edit-webapp in the appropriate directory. You can NOT just copy the whole of the atlassian-jira directory - you'll end up with inconsistent files and an unmaintainable mess next time you upgrade. You only want to include the files you've edited away from the baseline.
One other quick question:
>database and home directory same as old Jira
That is fine, but are you definitely working with separate application installations (e.g. your old Jira install is in /opt/jirastandalone and the new one in /opt/jirawar)?
-Downloaded and extracted the WAR zip,
-Copied the old /atlassian-jira directory to tomcats /edit-webapp
-added jira home path as a parameter in jira.xml and saved in /conf/Catalina/localhost
Old and new JIRA are on the same machine , database and home directory is same as old JIRA
Ok, that sounds healthier, so can you confirm the exact structure you've got under edit-webapp? To check it, could you take your built WAR file and expand it into a temporary directory and compare that tree with the file tree you get with an off-the-shelf war - basically we're looking to see that your modified files are over-riding the ones you get by default.
removing the -c worked .. I unziped it war and found that the there is an /atlassian-jira directory ... I was doing a mistake in directory structure .
correct structure is edit-webapps/WEB-INF/classes
I was using edit-webapps/atlassian-jira/WEB-INF .
I will try and let you know whether it works .. Thanks :)
