I'm a lone developer who just purchased and downloaded a load of Atlassian tools for my own use on a single home PC. I am trying (and now given up after three hours or so) to follow the Dragons install path (https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/ATLAS/Dragons+Stage+1+-+Install+JIRA) but failed at stage 1 step 4: install JIRA. No matter what I try I can't get it to work. All instructions have been followed to the letter: all default install locations and all environment variables set up as shown. I have even tried new port settings and using a full Tomcat install instead of the bundled one. My PC runs windows 7 ultimate on a quad-core AMD Phenom 2 X2 840 CPU with 8GB RAM. I have the latest Java 7 JDK installed and latest PostgreSQL database running. I couldn't find anything in the help or forums so am turning to you as a last place of hope. Can you help?
Allow me to share the JIRA installation docs with you:
Please have a good look through and if doesn't work please raise a ticket in our support.atlassian.com and provide details of the errors and the support team will help you with this instalation.
Hope that helps.
