How to start Jira automatically as a service


my Problem ist that JIRA does not set permissions right during setup.

I tried the Bug workarround but is does not work.

After boot I always have to manualy 'sudo /etc/init.d/JIRA start' to get the server up.

And I don't understand the steps 8.1 and 8.2 in this tutorial

Issn't there a way to start JIRA automatically during boot?

What do I have to do to execute the 'JIRA start' script as root during boot?

Steps 8.1 and 8.2 are the processes you need to start JIRA automatically on boot.  You only need one of them of course, it depends on what you're running it on.

I'm stuck there.

No matter which line from 8.1 I try, sudo or not I get:

-bash: ../init.d/jira: Permission denied

Any ideas what I am missing??

Is /etc/init.d/jira actually there?  If it is, what are the permissions on it?
