JIRA fresh install "The connection has timed out"

Hi, i install new jira (atlassian-jira-5.2.5-x64.bin) on CentOS release 6.3 (Final)

some logs:

(atlassian-jira.log) (catalina.out.txt)

I got the same thing on CentOS as well using the latest atlassian-jira-6.2-x64.bin. Can some one help to figure out what's going on here?

Did you find any solution

I'm also stuck at same point

Hey Oleg,

The good news is, everything in the logs seems fine. But could you perhaps clarify on where and/or how you are facing the connection timeout? Is it when you are trying to access the instance?

If so, could you try accessing it via localhost (if you are not doing so currently)?

See if you can access the application locally as suggested before:


Then if can access locally, test if the port is accessible for remote access, trying to telnet it from a different computer, eg:

telnet jiraipaddress jiraport

If you can't connect to the port, you will need to allow access to this port on your server or Firewall so as to enable remote access to the application.


iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 8087 -j ACCEPT service iptables restart
