Hi, I'm new to setting up JIRA. I'm just trying to install it and run it on my local machine. I've been following all the steps but can't seem to get past the attached image. I've tried installing with the H2 embedded database then changing to the postgreSQL one, and I've tried setting up the postgreSQL one initially, and still get the same issue. Could anyone explain what I might be doing wrong in terms I might understand? cheeky

Thanks!

(to be clear, I input all the data and then the red error at the top appears)

What shows in the Atlassian-JIRA.log?

Did you reset the db between resets?

I did delete/drop the database and then recreate it before each re-installation of JIRA. Here's the error at the end of the log file:

Same line at the end with JIRA 7.10.1 and in-memory db H2DB on Windows 8.1

/secure/SetupLicense.jspa [c.a.jira.application.ApplicationConfigurationHelper] There are no writable directories to create the default group for the new license. 

So what is the solution for this one?
