I seem to recall in JIRA release notes that they moved the location of mysql jdbc connector jar file from JIRA_INST to JIRA_HOME. I think it said they moved the setenv.sh file also. Both can still run from the INST directory but if they are moved the JIRA_HOME they won't be deleted with each upgrade. If you use the installers this is probably done for you. But I install manually and I can't seem to find that information now. Can anyone point me to a link where it indicates which files can be moved from INST to HOME to avoid having them clobbered with upgrades?

AFAIK, this never happens. But yea, if you are doing a manual install, you'll have to reapply all changes including the database drivers.
Yes, I know, I have a script that reapplies our custom changes and installs the database driver. But I'm sure I saw something that showed a specific HOME directory where you can put the database driver and an env file permanently. Just wish I could find that information now.
Aha I found it. But I was mistaken about it being Jira. It was for Stash installations. They moved the jdbc connector jar and the server.xml files to Home from INST in version 3.8. I wish the other Atlassian tools would catch on to this. Less intervention during upgrades. Release Directory Stash 3.7 and earlier <Stash installation directory>/conf/server.xml Stash 3.8 and later <Stash home directory>/shared/server.xml Alicia
