I can't find Jira support so I'll try reporting here. I completed (I think) a test install of Jira 6.2.4 using the Linux installer on a stock CentOS 6 on AWS c3.large instance, but it wasn't easy. I got stalled three times and had to search the net for workarounds.
1) The first big problem when configuring the database (MySQL). It took a long time, then at the end it dies with:
Unable to find ActiveObjects plugin. The plugin must be enabled for the restore to work.
Other people report this is due to using Tomcat 7.x but if so why does the installer ship with 7.x?
After a restart I was able to resume, but I'm not clear if the database was fully configured or how to find out? I could just start over but seems like I'll hit the same error
2) After restarting, Jira cashed on start with things like:
The following plugins are required by JIRA, but have not been started:
Gadget Directory Plugin (com.atlassian.gadgets.directory)
Atlassian JIRA - Plugins - Gadgets Plugin (com.atlassian.jira.gadgets)
Atlassian JIRA - Plugins - Quick Edit Plugin (com.atlassian.jira.jira-quick-edit-plugin)
So it is running, but rough going.
I'd raise this with Atlassian support, as these problems really shouldn't occur - try support.atlassian.com(for licenced customers) or jira.atlassian.com(for the public tracker which isn't support, but is good for issues in general and improvement requests like "better scripting and chkconfig support")
Atlassian Summit is an excellent opportunity for in-person support, training, and networking.Learn more
