Jira Installation

Hello Support,

I have taken the trial version of the Jira.I am installing it on tomcat6.0 on windows 7.0. I have referred the steps and tried to configured the Jira suggested on https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA051/Installing+JIRA+on+Tomcat+6.0. other thing I am trying to configure the database of MSSQL but there is no config.bat given in .war which I have downloaded and after the configuration is completed, when I am browsing the site with http://localhost:8080/jira, it is giving the error that Jira.home not set. I have set the JIRA.HOME in jira-application.properties as JIRA.home=c:/jira as well as set in environment variable in system settings and from the command line as set JIRA.HOME=c:/jira still it is showing the error jira.home not set.

You help will be highly appreciated.

You have to specified the jira home under edit-webapp/WEB-INF/classes/jira-application.properties before you build the file.

If you have build the file, you might need to set the home directory in that file and then rebuild the file again.

Hi Vishal,

Regarding your issue type we can fix it doing a very simple setting. Open your file /install/atlassian-jira/WEB-INF/classes/jria-application.properties and type the following:

jira.home = C:\\Jira\\home

Take care, because you are using Windows then you have to type slash (\\) twice to indicate the directory tree. In addition you can check out on it how to configure Jira_Home.
