We started this on windows but discovered subversion and so on are not to happy with IIS and it wasrecommendedthat we move over to linux. SoI started the process but it won't allow me to use the same db (needs to be empty during install) and after i create a new db (hoping i can imprt the old data or use the od db) it get to the part with the server ID number which of course is diffeent. What doi need to do?
IMHO, easiest way :
1) stop jira
2) stop database
3) create enviroment on a new server ( install DB, apache, create users, etc )
4) copy %installdir% and %homedir% on the new server
4a) change path's win->linux in %installdir%/atlassian-jira/WEB-INF/classes/jira-application.properties
5) copy jira database on a new server
6) start jira on a new server
P.S. and it's much faster than full-backup way
There are 2 ways of changing server ID, easiest one is by restoring XML backup from existing version, other is to change server ID while running setup. For this you need to locate server ID in database.
You may locate server ID in propertyentry and propertystring table (oracle query below)
Select Ps.Id, Ps.Propertyvalue, Pe.Entity_Name, Pe.Property_Key
From Propertystring Ps, Propertyentry Pe Where Ps.Id=Pe.Id
and pe.entity_name='jira.properties' and pe.property_key like'jira.sid.key'
Below are steps that you should be following in case XML restore fails to get jira application going as per your expectation. Note that you are required to have appropriate rights in DB schema for dropping tables.
