How to change Jira 7.11 base URL without web interface after cloning VM?

The production deployment of Jira server runs on the URL and I want to clone it into a test deployment that runs on the URL .

The database comes up fine; tomcat on the webserver comes up and connects to the database after editing /opt/var/atlassian/application-data/jira/dbconfig.xml to reflect the new database location/IP.

Upon startup, the test instance still appears to be trying to connect to itself at "" as reported in /opt/atlassian/jira/logs/catalina.out - but this times out, as expected (thankfully). The web interface is, of course, unavailable.
