Export database to local file system

We have installed JIRA on VMWare VM with Ubuntu 11.10.

At the moment I am unable to log into the VM - maybe the user has some problem. We are working on this, but in the mean while I would like to be able to back the database onto another machine (my local desktop).

The back up functionality in JIRA backs up at /var/atlassian/application-data/jira/export on same machine as the JIRA installation.

Is there any way I can back up on to another machine - like my own desktop, in case I have to recreate the VM and re-install JIRA?

Thank you for the answer and your time! We did try to recover/reset the user's password, but the profile seems to have got corrupted.

We are trying stuff on the side, but as a solution have installed jira afresh and re-configuring :-(

Hi Krupa

Since JIRA 4.1.2, the user is unable to change the default backup directory. However, if your instance is an upgrade from this kind of version, you might be able to change it through UI.

For further details, please have a look to the following documentation: (please refer to the blue box)

https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Automating+JIRA+Backups

So, I believe that the options are:

1. Try to connect to the database server from your machine. You can do that using another JIRA installation/instance or through a database management tool

2. Restoring the system password. Perhaps you may find many options on Google, as the following one:
