For Windows:

Use \JIRA\stop_service.bat to stop JIRA and \JIRA\start_service.bat to start JIRA again. You can do it also by using service management console in Windows. Web Browser is not possible at this time.

For Linux:

start-jira.sh and stop-jira.sh (you find this files in bin folder of your instance)

Where is that script? I can't found it on my server. Maybe it isn't on the server (via sFTP or FTP)? I'm working on the Mac system.

I use JIRA download version and it's on my linux server

Ok, Linux? Then use start-jira.sh and stop-jira.sh. This files should be found in bin folder.

Did you find it?

In case it is installed on a Windows machine, you may have it configured as a Windows service. You can see more details here.

Cheers

Please look at the comments. He is using linux.

Hi Pawel,

from browser it is not possible.

We wrote init.d scripts:

{code}

#!/bin/bash
#
#


case "$1" in
start)
echo "starting JIRA tomcat"
su - JIRAUSER -c "/opt/start/bin/startup.sh"
;;
stop)
echo "stoping Jira Tomcat"
su - JIRAUSER-c "/opt/start/bin/shutdown.sh"
echo "wait15s and kill java"
sleep 15
/usr/bin/pkill -U JIRAUSERjava

;;
*)
echo "Usage: $0 {start|stop}"
exit 1
;;
esac

exit 0
{code}

JIRAUSER is a dedicated user that starts/stops our jira
Our Jira lies under /opt/JIRA-INSTALL and /OPT/JIRAHOME.

/opt/start is a symbolic link to /opt/JIRA-INSTALL

with those /etc/init.d scripts you can start/stop jira (or whatever) as root but the application is started/stopped as the dedicated user.

Kind regards
André

Why are you restarting it?

Hi Andre,

What is the name of the file and where I have to upload this file? Am I understand it's working like this:

- when I'm logging to JIRA as that user it start JIRA

- when i"m loging off it stops JIRA?

Is it possible to restart (shutdown and start) JIRA from phpMyAdmin?
