Hi , I am working with Jira 'PDF Viewer' and editing templates. I need to restart tomcat6 regularly, without rebooting my machine.
I have seen numerous articles about doing it, but they all assume some prior understaning i do not have.
does anyone know a step by step process for a dummy to restart tomcat6 (or whatever webservice is supporting my Jira 5.1 install?
any help much appreciated. thanks James
Hi, have you installed this as a service? If so you simply restart the Tomcat service in Windows' list of services.
Otherwise, you can go to your tomcat installation directory, go to the bin directory run stop and then run start after it has properly stopped.
Hi, the only service i can find is 'Atlassian JIRA' --no mention of apacghe or tomcat. if i stop this from windows service util, i msg that stopping failed. then when i restart the service, i find Jira is locked and wont start.
tomcat was installed with JIRA, the exe is here
or is it
But the only stop/start scripts here are for Jira (stop-jira.bat, start-jira.bat) and i stop and start JIRA with those, i get same JIRA is locked error.
You don't need to constantly restart Tomcat while working on template for the JIRA PDF View Plugin. This is unproductive, time consuming (and annoying :-)).
Instead, we suggest you turn off the caching of templates for the development time. If you do this, all change you make in your templates (and scripts) will be immediately visible!
Disabling caching is rather simple, see item 4 in the FAQ: https://studio.plugins.atlassian.com/wiki/x/9YC0Aw
After you completed your development work, we suggest turning on the caching again.
