JIRA WAR/EAR 6.2.2 Error 500 after installation

This is a new installation of 6.2.2. The system is RHEL V5 running Tomcat 6. Tomcat seems to be running normally, Jira gets deployed and is ready for logins. I get an error 500 after accessing the login URL. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Mike

Hi, this stack trace refers to this kb: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRAKB/Upgrade+failed+due+to+UnsupportedOperationException

You may want to check whether this is the case.

Cheers

Stupid user error.

This can be closed.

I'm getting the same issue, with Jira 6.2.5 WAR. Followed the link but I don't have the argument (and also using Java 6).

Any suggestions?

To be honest I was in a real hurry when I was installing this upgrade and don't remember exactly what fixed it. However, I can give you a few things to check.

Make sure the docbase is set to the right war file in Tomcat's server.xml file and that it's actually loading it. I think my problem was I had an older expanded version of Jira in the webapps folder. I'm not a Tomcat expert but it seemed to me that Tomcat was using this expanded version and ignoring the new WAR file. I deleted the expanded Jira code in the webapps folder and that forced Tomcat to deploy the new WAR file.

Also, make sure jira.home is set to the current home directory. When upgrading I'll create a new home directory just in case I need to backout to the old version.

Again, sorry I can pin down the root cause of the problem.

Mike
