Hello,

Take a moment to check your logs for more clues about this behaviour:

  • JIRA_Install/log/catalina.out
  • JIRA_HOME/logs/atlassian-jira.log

  • Try to connect using the default postgres user.
  • Try changing from "127.0.0.1" to "localhost"

thank you Pedro Souza ,

What does the log file say? It will almost certainly have a lot more information, hopefully including the full error, than what you get on screen.

thank you Nic Brough

there is no exception on jira logs on jira-home

I very much doubt that - either the setup is still running, or it's failing with a set of errors in the logs.

Can you log into the database and check what Jira has created in there?

there is no table on jira database

Well, no, a memory error will stop it dead. Pedro is ahead of me here :-)
