I want to move my JIRA installation to a new location on the same server. It will connect to the same (remote) database.
Is this move handled in the same way as moving to a new server or can I just move the structure and modify config files?
Thanks in advance

You don't need to make many modifications - as long as you pick up and move the installation directory without making any changes to its structure at all, it will continue to work.
For example "mv /opt/jira3 /data/jira303" will relocate the whole installation. Only change of config is to change the startup script to look at /data/jira303
The data directory is different - if your jira-home is set to say /home/jira/jiradata and you move it to say /data/jiradata, then you'll need to edit the JIRA file that points to the data directory before you restart it.
To be more specific, I want to move the entire JIRA installation - including the data directory to a new location on the same server. Going through the config files I can find, I can't find anything that points to the data directory.
What all files will I need to modify for this move?
