Looks like the JIRA that you copied from is using Crowd for authentication. From the new server, the crowd server is probably not reachable.


Thanks you answer.

I had checked the crowd, the crowd is running well!

And I had added the "Remote Addresses"

At last I reinstall JIRA, and use the workable Crowd backup.

Then it workable.

jiannan Tang, try verifing that your crowd is reachable. from new localtion console try:
telnet your-crowd-address 80
telnet your-crowd-address 443
if you cannot connect disable websudo:
in your $JIRA_HOME directory (where you have jira data files - attachements, indexes, plugins etc. - not installed files),
create if it doesn't already exist file named ""
add line: = true
restart jira
With this option jira won't ask you for password for the second time
