I tried to install JIRA on Ubuntu, on a headless server in the cloud. I use lynx to run the setup. During installation, it asks for a license key. The Atlassian web site will give me a license key, if I supply a server id. The server ID I get when I run Jira. But I can't run JIRA because I need the license key to install it. How do I get past this deadlock? Should I completely remove JIRA from my server, and try installing again? Will the installer show me a server ID?
As I said, the server is behind a firewall, it doesn't have an external ip number. In the mean time, I have access to the server via the Apache proxy, but I get the same page asking for a license key and not giving a server id.
The Atlassian site says "If you are installing JIRA for the first time, you can locate your Server ID on the Specify your license key screen in the JIRA setup wizard." but that page doesn't show me a server ID. Not in Lynx, not in Chrome.
Right. The server ID was not on the page, but I did find it in the HTML source. Now I have a license key. However, I can't seem to make JIRA work through my Apache proxy. Oh well...
