How do I know if I have installed Jira and Confluence in the same Tomcat container?

Easy answer is that one or both of them are likely to be crashing!

Check the system information page for both, it will tell you where the Tomcat they are running inside is located.  Different directories = different Tomcats.

You can find the installation directory and the tomcat container details under Administration > System Information for both products. That will be a good place to start.

I went to "system info" in both apps.


For Confluence, the information reads:

Application ServerApache Tomcat/8.0.28


For Jira, the information reads:

Application Server ContainerApache Tomcat/8.0.17


Neither apps are crashing, smile and their "Application Servers" are in different directories. 

Thanks for the feedback!


Different versions is a guarantee of separate installs too!

Right... I guess I got lucky. The different versions were installed by the Jira & Confluence Linux installers. Any advice for avoiding this in the future?

Avoiding what?

You have to work quite hard to install both systems in one container, especially since the WAR/EAR downloads were discontinued.
