I installed the latest JIRA Installer in a rackspace cloud server using CentOS 6 Installation went well. I also set up the MySQL database and connected it to JIRA, but I dont know how to access JIRA for set up etc. I know http://localhost:8080 will not work because I can't access it via web browser in the server only have Terminal access. Can't access using ip adress of server and port number. so How do you go about setting up JIRA in an external server?
I just set up Jira on Rackspace, and everything is working in my first test case (evaluation)
(1) SSH to your server.
(2) Execute "ifconfig eth0" to determine your IP address
(3) Use http://<your_ip_address>:8080/ to access jira initially.
(4) Because you are using HTTP, you are not secured. Check out the following article on how to secure Jira using SSL (HTTPS):
(5) you might also look at the documentation for Tomcat best practices and such to secure your server.
