Installation on cloud server with only console access Edited

I am attempting to install 64 bit jira onto a 64 bit linux cloud server to which I only have ssh access.

The installation fails with the message "Could not display the GUI this application needs access to an X server. You can also run this in console mode without access to an x server by passing the argument -c"

I have done this. The error remains. The advice is that this only occurs when you attempt to install a 32bit Jira onto a 64 bit server.

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRASERVER-33663

 

ARCH = x86_64.

bin file = atlassian-jira-software-7.4.0-x64.bin

64 bit system. 64 bit installer with the -c argument. result. Fail.

What do I need to do to make the installer respect the -c argument?

 

//small update.

issue as above on uname -a = Linux panda.zyma.com 2.6.32-604.30.3.lve1.3.63.el6.x86_64 #1 SMP Sun Sep 27 06:34:10 EDT 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Issue not present on Amazon Web Services: Amazon Linux x86_64

Hi Edward,

we do not use the installer but the tar.gz-archive for our installation on linux. 

Maybe this is also an option for you.

certainly worth a try! I will update in due course.

I consider this as a bug... even passing the -c argument and still not possible to install?

[root@vm24017 atlas]# sudo ./atlassian-jira-software-7.6.0-x64.bin -c

Unpacking JRE ...

Starting Installer ...

Lis 27, 2017 12:35:05 ODP. java.util.prefs.FileSystemPreferences$2 run

INFO: Created system preferences directory in java.home.

Could not display the GUI. This application needs access to an X Server.

You can also run this application in console mode without

access to an X server by passing the argument -c
