So I got the new server and ready to install JIRA with tomcat apache. I need to know step to step process.( I dont need details but need to know what goes first and whats next)
Required: I need to run it on https
Download the version of JIRA (or JIRA Software, or JIRA Service Desk) that you want.
Run the installation
Decide if you want to do https in Tomcat (not recommended) or use a proxying web-server to do it for you (strongly recommended), and follow the guide for that.
For the install https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver073/installing-jira-applications-on-linux-861253030.html (You may need a different one if you're on Windows or something else, or want a different version of JIRA, although the principles are the same)
For Tomcat SSL, try https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver073/running-jira-applications-over-ssl-or-https-861253906.html and for Apache, see https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver073/securing-jira-applications-with-apache-http-server-861253901.html
Installing JIRA is fairly easy. You will first need to consider how large you believe your instance will be in the future and what database you will use. In regards to the size of the instance, here is the JIRA Sizing Guide. As your instance grows you can refer to it for your instance's memory needs.
You'll want to setup your database first. You'll need to make sure you are using a supported database for the version of JIRA you're using and here is the Connecting JIRA Applicatons to a database guide for the database you chose to use.
Once you have done that:
Finally, here is a link to the Administering JIRA Server 7.3 applications start page. On the top right you will see a drop down that will let you choose past versions of JIRA if you chose to install a previous version. You should be able to find topics broken down into sections that will help you administer JIRA going forward.
Thanks for your quick response. I do have enterprise level license. I do use windows server 2012.
I do have Prod and QA instances already running and they are using AD for users using LDAP and exisiting DB. I just have to configure new instance to the same DB.
Anything I need to follow or keep in mind to avoid errors/mistakes?
As long as you follow the supported platforms guide and setup the db per Connecting JIRA Applicatons to a database guide the you should be fine. Keep the JIRA Sizing guide handy for when your instance starts to take on more load and you should be set!
