I have several issues with my JIRA config at the moment. I want to move from a hsql local DB to an external Mysql DB and I want to upgrade to the latest version and I want Greenhopper installed.
To get Greenhopper, I need the Universal Plugin Manager, which I do not have (can't find?). To get the UPM I need to do this (https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/20846/can-t-find-universal-plugin-manager-after-upgrade-to-4-4 ). It might be easier to move to the new DB before doing this, I thought
To move the DB I need to run config.bat to get the Jira configuration tool running, which does not run. I get "No JRE_home or JAVA_HOME environment variable is set." I have no clue what this means...
And I cannot move my DB without (sure, there are other ways, but for me...)
So in a nutshell:
How do I get config.bat running?
It does indeed seem that there is some confusion here because you should be able to run SQL commands on your database by following the instructions in this document: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Running+SQL+commands+in+a+HSQL+database
However, to migrate your database you will need to export the data in XML format, attach a new database and then import the data again. You can do this by following the steps outlined below:
dbconfig.xmlfile in your JIRA Home Directory.
Hopefully these answers should get you moving towartds getting your Database migrated and Greenhopper installed, although I'm not sure why you are unable to launch the JIRA Configuration Tool but the procedure above will allow you to do what you are trying to achieve.
All the best,
