Jira is a popular issue tracking and project management software developed by Atlassian. It is widely used by software development teams to plan, track, and release their work. In addition to issue tracking, Jira provides features like agile board, customizable workflows, and a marketplace for add-ons.
Step 1: Update the System
Before starting the installation, it is recommended to update the system packages to their latest versions. Open a terminal and run the following command:
sudo yum update
Step 2: Install Java
Jira requires Java to run. You can install OpenJDK from the default CentOS repositories by using the following command:
sudo yum install java-1.8.0-openjdk
Step 3: Download and Extract Jira
Visit the official Atlassian website and navigate to the Jira download page. Copy the link address for the latest version of Jira Software (tar.gz package). In the terminal, use the following command to download the package to your server:
Replace [JIRA_DOWNLOAD_URL] with the copied link address.
Once the download is complete, extract the downloaded package using the following command:
tar -zxvf [JIRA_PACKAGE_FILENAME]
Replace [JIRA_PACKAGE_FILENAME] with the name of the downloaded file.
Step 4: Move Jira to Opt Directory
Move the extracted Jira software to the /opt directory by running the following command:
sudo mv [JIRA_PACKAGE_DIRECTORY] /opt/jira
Replace [JIRA_PACKAGE_DIRECTORY] with the name of the extracted directory.
Step 5: Create a Dedicated Jira User
Create a dedicated system user to run the Jira service by using the following command:
You can now access Jira by opening a web browser and entering your server's IP address or hostname followed by the port number 8080 (http://server_ip_or_hostname:8080). Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the initial setup of Jira.
It is recommended to configure a reverse proxy server like Nginx to secure your Jira instance and enable SSL encryption.
