What config file(s) do I change to make atlassian products use a different jdbc driver for PostgreSQL?

I have Jira, Confluence, Stash, FishEye and bamboo, some of these come with a JDBC driver and seem to be working even though the driver they are using doesn't match the version of the PostgreSQL database. For example JIRA came with postgresql-9.0-801.jdbc4 and even though I put postgresql-9.3-1102.jdbc4 in the lib folder before configuring the database during install of Jira I can see that JIRA is using the 9.0 801 build in the  JIRA System Info screen. There must be a config file where I can tell each atlassian app what version of the postgres jdbc driver to use. Do I need to remove the older postgresql drivers from the lib directories?

I stopped the app services, removed the old drivers and restarted the apps and it picked up the new driver.
