So... my understanding is that Jira 6 was available as a WAR file, but Jira 7 is not. However I'd like to install Jira on my existing tomcat box (currently tomcat 6 but we're migrating to tomcat 8 ASAP). Any tips or tutorials on doing this? I've tried grabbing the zip file and putting the atlassian-jira folder into webapps while selectively copying parts of server.xml into my own server.xml but that doesn't seem to work.
Thanks in advance.
It's a right pain trying to unpick a JIRA from the installation - you can copy the web-app, but you need to replicate all the Tomcat config in a different shape - compare your Tomcat's conf and bin directory with an installed JIRA 7 set.
Also, bear in mind
Well that's a pain. I suspect that's going to cause more issues than it's worth, in terms of keeping both our existing application and jira working, and having them play nicely together.
Looks like it's time for plan B then:
It's a shame there's no simple way to do it but I guess it is what it is.. unless anyone has any better ideas?
