Install on server with other hosting accounts on

I am considering setting up a personal Jira+Confluence+Greenhopper+Tempo and as i have a dedicated server where I also host some websites (running cPanel on Linux) it would be nice to add the setup to that server, but I am unsure how much it would influence the hosting accounts on the server?

As I understand it Jira with it's plugins need to be installer serverwide and it can not be installed in just one account on a server (like inside one hosting account on the server)?

Hi jimi. If your cpanel supports it you could use the war files to install jira and confluence easily. Or if you're root just use the installer. Modifications must be done anyway. If you need help with that just let us know
i've installed many times on customers hosts with plesk. No problem. Everything works as usual

I am root of course :)

How resource intense is Jira and Confluence and is there something I should consider in regards of system resources?

hmm depends on what you're planning ;)

you could start by installing both on the same host. if you reach the point where you cross the line to a "large installation" you can safely migrate to a new host. latest examples proved it works like a charm ;)

because jira&atlassian both bring their own JRE there are no really deep system changes made during the installation process.

I am having an issue with the following error on 1&1

Error: JAVA_HOME is not defined correctly.

We cannot execute java

I have unzipped the jdk-7u51-linux-x64.gz in the same directory has the jira build files. What am I doing incorrectly here?

did you set it in

${jira_install_dir}/atlassian-jira/WEB-INF/classes/ ?

Hi Jimi,

In fact you don't need to do any changes on your hosted accounts, but create an user for the apps.

If you want you can create an user to each application and serve them through apache mod_proxy to give a vhost to each application.

If it's your wish you can install all applications with only one user, but it's easier to manage the processes if you use different accounts.

Friday Fun: What's your favourite beer/drink

As a Belgian, beer-lover and home brewer, beer is one of my great passions. I love the fact that with just a few ingredients (usually just water, hop and malt) you can create so many different tastes...
