Trying to setup SSL on JIRA, Cannot run (JIRA configuration tool)

When I try to run, I'm getting a NPE.... (See bellow).

Is there a config file that I can set manually instead of running the config jira configuration tool so I can put all that I need there...


Loading application properties from /usr/home/jira/atlassian-jira-5.0.7-standalone/atlassian-jira/WEB-INF/classes/

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NullPointerException

You can config the database connection in file <JIRA_HOME>/dbconfig.xml. Here is an example how you can do it for HSQLDB

My database connection is already set-up (I've added the dbconfig.xml a while ago). My jira works fine. So I dought this is the problem.

Since I'm running in console mode only, it's normal that the GUI doesn't show up, i'm assuming this is the problem. This is why I want to know if there is a way to set-up manually without goin through the JIRA tool GUI.

I'm running FreeBSD.

Anyone ? I really need to figure this thing out.... !!!!

What exactly are you trying to do? If you are trying to setup SSL shouldn't that be in the server.xml of Tomcat? What are you looking for?

Yes, I want to set-up SSL. I'm following this:

I can't use the JIRA CONFIGURATION TOOL, i'm need to know in which config file (or in which db) i need to manually add my ssl config....
