Some days ago, my box with the jira installation on it died, and some hardware parts needed to be replaced. Today, I rebuilt the box, and started to reinstall all software on it. I'm running FreeBSD 9.0, with openjdk6. To recover my jira 4.4.1 installation, I did the following:
1) recover my mysql server and database. the old jira data is present in the `jira` db scheme, and I can verify that data exists (e. g. I can see all the issues in the jiraissue table)
2) set JAVA_HOME, run the startup.sh script
3) access myhost:8080 to run the setup (jira-data folder is not existing yet, its created by the setup once started)
4) tell the setup to use "jira2" as database, because it won't let me chose a not-empty database
5) finish the setup, shutdown jira
6) edit jira-data/dbconfig.xml and replace `jira2` with `jira`, to use the database with the existing data
7) start jira again
I can now log into JIRA, and I can use all users that were present before the hardware crash. I can see the projects, and also the versions. However I can not see a single issue (no matter if logged in as admin or regular user).
Can anyone help me with this? How can I recover the jira issues?
Ate you seeing the issues if you use the direct URL? /browse/issueKey?
If so, t is a problem with indexing. Tru a full reindexing and see if it fixes it.
Thanks for the quick response. Directly accessing the issue didn't work, but everything works now after re-indexing.
I wan't to upgrade to jira 5.1.1 now. Should I use JDK6 or JDK7? I could not run the 4.4.1 installer with JDK7, but jira 4.4.1 now is giving me warnings that I should update my JDK version to update 16 or something, but I'm somewhat tied to what packages freebsd/openjdk provides.
You should really upgrade to the latest version of JDK 6 too - even release 31 has some security issues. 16 is rather old and if you're upgrading, I wouldn't bother, I'd jump to the latest. I'm not really a java developer, but I work with them, and they say that 27(ish) and above have some performance tweaks which are worth having in Jira.
