Need some help to install Jira Software to a VPS with Webmin

Hi everyone,

I was trying to install Jira Software to a VPS with Webmin. Anyone has previous experience or any links or guides ?

You can't do it with Webmin.  To install Jira, you need command line access so that you can run the installer (or unpack a packaged file).

Hi Nic,

Thanks for the response. Yeah I was looking for any guide on command line installation as the .bin file installation failed. With my further research I have found this guide and it was very helpful. Already followed many steps.

But installation failed with saying this

Wrong JVM version! You are running with .. but JIRA requires at least 1.8 to run


But when I checked java version with "java -version" command and the result is
openjdk version "1.8.0_181"

That suggests the JAVA_HOME is being set incorrectly for the service.  Check what is being set in

Like Anton Perera likes this

Yeah I thought the same and tried the resetting JAVA_HOME but didn't worked and had to try another workaround found on this community which suggested to change the line below in <Jira-installation-files>/bin/ file

Thanks mate for the support.  :)






Additionally, self-hosted Jira can establish a direct connection with your current database server, which can lower hosting expenses. However, cost isn't the only consideration, many firms choose to host their apps on-premises because doing so provides you total control. It works very well for me on, I am using this vps because it has no issues with all the other software that I am using, and it also works perfectly with guru and all the others that I've tried so far.
