Your database settings are incorrect.

How did you do the change? What documentation did you follow? What config files did you touch? Can you check them for the right data?

The error is telling you what is wrong. Your dbconfig.xml in JIRA's data/home directory is telling JIRA to connecto to a database called jiradb with some username/password. It appears the username or password is wrong

Perhaps he could be running on HSQLDB. The error does not indicate ORA or any DBMS specific error code.

As I remember when my instance was down due to this reason, there was an ORA-xxxxx number.

What's the type of database?

(Oracle/ MySQL/ Default hsqldb)
