Such as:

I need to remove .jira.home.lock file every restart.

I need to run -fg every restart, but it always stop INFO:Server startup in 49231ms, so Jira doesn't work.

Hi Weber,

As discussed in our support ticket, it was caused by your firewall, and it seems to work once you disabled your firewall.

Feel free to accept an answer and close this question :)

Try using different port number, change the ports using JIRA Configuration Tool. And 5.2.5 already released :)

I can't look for one full document to configure JAVA, MYSQL, JIRA

What version of Java do you have? We had some similar issues with Java 7.

And why you need to run jira in foreground?

why close the firewall. thats not a good idea..just allow the communication with jira and you should be fine...but disabling it completely is not the smartest solution

Sorry. Need to close firewall
