Missing file in Jira War

Hi All,

I downloaded the jira war file and deployed it. I need to change the default port and in the docs I read

There won't be a server.xml in the war version. It is supposed to be deployed in an Application server like Tomcat which will have a server.xml.

You might want to download the standalone version instead!

Thank you Jobin for you're swift reply. I installed the software not by the war on my Glassfish HA cluster but by hand. So I could easily put a different port in the configuration.

Eh? If you're building a WAR you should do so from the WAR download rather than by hand.
