I'm assuming you have access to server, are familiar with Linux/Bash, and have access to the User ID that is running JIRA.  Login to the server with the JIRA user ID and verify that the JAVA_HOME and the JRE_HOME environment variables are set.  If not, you can set them in either the .bash_aliases file for the JIRA user.  Another method that can be used is to declare the two environment variables in either the catalina.sh file, or the start-jira.sh.  Just make sure that you set the JAVA_HOME and JRE_HOME variables in the first lines of the script (e.g. in start-jira.sh, put the declarations on the next line after #!/bin/bash.  In catalina.sh, declare on the first lines after all of the variable definitions).
