Hi Bryan, <br> <br>Jira is commercial software. I’m sure their support team would be willing to help you through the steps to deploy it. They do have an installation guide for Linux: <br> <br> <br> <br>They provide an installer that you can use the “wget” command to download onto your droplet and run. For instance, to download their 64bit trial edition, use: <br> <br><pre> <br>wget <br></pre> <br> <br>Make the file executable and then run it with: <br> <br><pre> <br>chmod +x atlassian-jira-6.2.4-x64.bin <br>./atlassian-jira-6.2.4-x64.bin <br></pre> <br> <br>When asked, select ‘Express Install’ After the installer has finished, make sure Jira is running by: <br> <br><pre> <br>/opt/atlassian/jira/bin/ <br></pre> <br> <br>You should now be able to access Jira in the browser to finish installation at: <br> <br>http://your.droplet.ip:8080

Hey, I’m trying to install Jira to on a Centos 6.5 64 bit.

I downloaded the latest version of jira (bin) from the official website using wget. After downloading I installed the bin using the default settings.

After installing i use: service jira start or /opt/atlassian/jira/bin/

But when i go to: http://myip:8080 i get a blank screen.

Anyone knows what to do?

I’m unable to connect once I run a manual install on a fresh droplet on CentOS. Any ideas? Thanks!

Same here… With Debian 7.0x64

maybe because of root user ¿?

@brantleyr: Did you get any errors when you tried to run the installer? What OS are you running?

I executed these steps on a fresh droplet with no success.

Hi Andrew , <br> <br>Thanks , this work well for me. <br> <br>How can i do the same for confluence? <br> <br> <br>
