Not able to find dbconfig.xml

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Connecting JIRA to PostgreSQL

IWe have JIRA installed, now we have changes the IP schema and due to this we are getting below error


2016-04-18 13:12:55,958 localhost-startStop-1 ERROR [o.o.c.entity.jdbc.DatabaseUtil] Unable to establish a connection with the database... Error was:org.postgresql.util.PSQLException: Connection refused.

How do I change IP "192.168.1.228" to new IP. I tried to find DBCONFIG.XML, but I am not able to find it.

Is there any other way to change IP?

Yes, It was not there

then I go into /opt/atlassian/jira/bin folder and run ./config.sh

There I entered proper details and then save the config.

This time dbconfig.xml file generated in /var/atlassian/application-data/jira/ folder.

And my issue resolved.

dbconfig.xml should be in the "JIRA home" directory.  Check in there first.
