Jira is not showing correctly after upgrade

After upgrading from JIRA 6.4 to 6.4.5 there was an advice in the log file to update the locale of the postgres database to either C or POSIX otherwise some functionalities will not work correctly. Steps I follow

  • Export database using pg_dump command and save the text dump file for later
  • Stop database server
  • Delete data/ folder and initdb again with --locale=POSIX
  • Start server, create again my database and import using psql dbname < dumpfile
  • Start JIRA and wait for database upgrade

After these step I am connecting to JIRA and I see the following. What could be the problem? What should I check? There is nothing in the log files

The web.xml file was not correct. Restore with original and now JIRA is working

I'm afraid "there is nothing in the log files" is inaccurate.  There should be a record of what has gone wrong with the current session, records of the upgrade, and all recent activity.  Please re-read atlassian-jira.log and catalina.out to see what is happening.  If both genuinely have nothing in them since your restart, then the service isn't running at all.
